Maysles Cinema’s 2021 Made In Harlem Film Series

March 5 - March 19


The first program of the fourth annual Made In Harlem Film Series is now streaming for free at Maysles Cinema March 5th-19th. (Re)considering Harlem: Legacies and Futures explores how the mythologies of Harlem reconcile (or do not) with its realities, how the ghosts of Harlem’s storied past find their way into its present. The aim of the series is to consider (and reconsider) Harlem, its visuals, its narratives, its legacies, and its futures. These words are plural and always have been.

Also part of the 2021 film series, Maysles will host a live ZOOM Q&A on Monday, March 17th with filmmaker Karen D. Taylor (IN THE FACE OF WHAT WE REMEMBER), Marcia Smith (President and Co-Founder of FIRELIGHT MEDIA), CR Capers (HARLEM FILM HOUSE), and series curator Andrea L. Battleground. RSVP for this panel discussion HERE.
