1 edition published in 2018 and held by 133 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

In the early decades of cinema, some of the most innovative and celebrated filmmakers in America were women. Alice Guy-Blaché helped establish the basics of cinematic language, while others boldly continued its development: slapstick queen Mabel Normand (who taught Charlie Chaplin the craft of directing), action star Grace Cunard, and LGBTQ icon Alla Nazimova. Unafraid of controversy, filmmakers such as Lois Weber and Dorothy Davenport Reid tackled explosive issues such as birth control, abortion, and prostitution. This crucial chapter of film history comes alive through the presentation of a wide assortment of films, carefully curated, meticulously restored in 2K and 4K from archival sources, and presented with new musical scores

Within our gates: "Within our gates is the earliest surviving feature film by an African-American director. It was Oscar Micheaux's second film (after 1919's The homesteader, now lost), and involves an idealistic young woman named Sylvia Landry (Evelyn Preer, one of the first great stars of the race film), who attempts to raise money for an elementary school to serve the black community (a premise that would be echoed in Micheaux's Birthright [1938]). In the course of navigating the racial politics of both the black and white communities, Sylvia's past is revealed in a series of flashbacks that contain the film's most notorious sequence: the lynching of her parents by a white mob. Micheaux's staging of the scene is startling in its bluntness and speaks volumes about the director's fearlessness and willingness to address taboo subject matter. The film touches up on other themes that would recur throughout the controversial filmmaker's career, such as the promise of rural life vs. the corruptive influence of the city, and the use of religion as a means of misleading the black community"--Booklet. flying ace: "Unlike his 1923 film Regeneration, Richard Norman's The flying ace exists in its enterety, and the image quality is stunning. A rural crime drama revolving around a pair of rival aviators, The flying ace illuminates the fact that many films made for African-American audiences were less concerned with race than with making popular entertainment in the traditional Hollywood style ... Filmed in the Arlington area of Jacksonville, Florida, The flying ace is a unique aviation melodrama in that no airplanes actually leave the ground (the spectacular flight scenes being performed on terra firma, in front of neutral backdrops). Norman divided the film into four chapters, so that exhibitors could show the film as a feature or as a four-episode serial. The film is buoyed by the presence of Norman Studios regular Steve "Peg" Reynolds as the hero's one-legged sidekick ..., who in one momorable scene rides a bicycle while firing a rifle built into the shaft of his crutch"--booklet

Eleven P.M.: "Produced in Detroit, Michigan by little-known African-American filmmaker Richard Maurice, Eleven P.M. is a surreal melodrama in which a poor violinist named Sundaisy (Maurice) tries to protect an orphaned girl (Wanda Mauice) from a small-time hoodlum. The story, which may or may not be a dream concocted by a struggling newspaperman, has one of the most bizarre endings in film history, when a spirit of the deceased Sundaisy possesses the body of a dog in order to take veneance upon the crook"--Booklet
