Join us at the AcademicHoodoo.com for a film expedition into the realm of Hollywood VOODOO, as we watch problematic and inauthentic depictions of blackness and Africana religions, noteworthy for their visions of race and culture on the silver screen.
Experience fake film VOODOO as we travel to the twentieth century, showcasing four movies that have left an indelible mark on history, whether for their their controversial narratives or historically significant representations. You will discover on-screen experiments that explore the VOODOO as an insidious racial and religious category, and you will consider the thematic influences on cinema within the larger societal contexts in which these films were created.
Our carefully curated selections will allow you to witness the evolution of VOODOO’s portrayal on the silver screen.
Every Sunday in October at 9 pm we will journey into the contrived and racially disingenuous world of VOODOO cinema. Sign up below!
