Description

Continuing our focus on providing Brooklyn audiences continuous access to independent Black cinema, The Luminal Theater is transforming one block on Tompkins Avenue during the 9th annual TAMA Summerfest Weekend Walks into a cinematic home, showcasing curated Black films with a focus on talent from Brooklyn-based creatives.


The day starts at 12 noon with:

  • Young Adult films

  • Indie films from Bed-Stuy and Brooklyn-based creatives, including Darius Clark Monroe’s “BLACK 14” and and Okema T. Moore’s “Shh..”

  • “Sistas in Cinema” - films from Black female filmmakers, including Sewra G. Kidane’s “Proclamation Punctuation”

  • Virtual/Augmented Reality presentation

  • Then we take the fun over to Potomac Playground (on Halsey & Tompkins) for an 8pm closing presentation of “72 Hours: A Brooklyn Love Story?” from local filmmaker Raafi Rivero
