Folk Life and Faraway Places Film Series Thursday, January 8, 2015 - 2:00pm

Wattstax (*R 1973, 103 minutes) - Film Viewing and Discussion

Wattstax  is a documentary film by Mel Stuart that focused on the 1972 Wattstax music festival and the African American community of Watts in Los Angeles, California. But Wattstax is more than a concert film. It also captures a heady moment in the mid-1970s, during the "black-is-beautiful" African-American movement, when Los Angeles's black community came together just seven years after the Watts riots to celebrate its survival and a renewed hope in its future.

An *R Rating indicates that viewers under the age of 17 must be accompanied by a parent or adult guardian.
