Event description

Description

Working at the intersection of cultural studies and film and media studies, film historian Ellen Scott—associate professor in the UCLA School of Theater, Film, and Television—will explore the history of the silent race film (now nearly lost amidst today’s visually saturated culture) and the ways in which it has evolved over the years.

FAQs

What are my transportation/parking options for getting to and from the event?

CAAM and Exposition Park are serviced by the Metro Expo Line in the light rail system. Our station is Expo Park/USC.

If you are driving, CAAM is at the corner of Figueroa Street and Exposition Boulevard, just west of the 110 Freeway. Please note that our parking lot entrance is at 39th and Figueroa. Please put that cross section into your maps search or GPS.

Parking is $12 during the day and $15 after 5pm. CASH ONLY.
