CINEMA GARDEN PARTY: AGENTS OF CHANGE
Caught at the crossroads of the civil rights, Black power, and anti-Vietnam war movements at a pivotal time in America’s history, this untold story examines the college students who struggled for a more relevant and meaningful education, including demands for black and ethnic studies programs, that became a clarion call across the country in the late 1960's.

The CINEMA GARDEN PARTY is an intimate, nighttime, outdoor film series serving as inter-neighborhood artistic alternatives for Bedford-Stuyvesant, instilling an enhanced film-centered sensibility, with empowering narratives, into the community -- while also uniting neighbors into public & common spaces with entertainment not commonly provided.
The Cinema Garden Party is sponsored, in part, by the New York State Council on the Arts with the support of Governor Andrew M. Cuomo and the New York State Legislature, and the Greater New York Arts Development Fund of the New York City Department of Cultural Affairs, administered by Brooklyn Arts Council (BAC). The Luminal Theater is a sponsored organization of the New York Foundation for the Arts. NYFA is a 501(c)(3), tax-exempt organization founded in 1971 to work with the arts community throughout New York State and the United States to develop and facilitate programs in all disciplines.
