Still from Kinky Babylon (Grayling Williams, 1979)

UCLA Student Films: 1970s

Sunday Dec 8, 2019 07:30 PM

The UCLA Film & Television Archive presents classic film and contemporary cinema in the Hammer's Billy Wilder Theater.

Part of the series 40 Years of UCLA Student Filmmaking. In addition to the screenings at the Hammer, more student films are available on the Archive's YouTube channel.

Collaborations with UCLA’s Visual Communications and the Ethno-Communications Departments contributed to greater inclusion of minority and women filmmakers behind and in front of the camera at the film school.
