Beyond Wakanda: Intersectional Afrofuturism
Afrofuturism is a Black aesthetic, philosophical, and artistic movement that dates to the mid-20th century; its influences can be seen most recently in Ryan Coogler's depiction of Wakanda, a place of super science, spiritual communion, and geopolitical influence predicated not on closeness to colonial nodes of power, but autonomy from them. This panel digs deep into the cultural archive of Afrofuturism to connect the broad audience of popular films like Black Panther to historical resources related to Afrofuturism, especially the work of Octavia Butler. Using records related to Butler's works of fiction and her life in Southern California, this panel uses zine making as a bridge between scholarly and popular archives, between the study of technology and Afrofuturism, and between LIS professionals and broader audiences. Participants will learn to use zines for audience engagement and will gain exposures to an abbreviated history of Afrofuturism in Southern California. Panelists include Kelly Besser (archivist, UCLA Library Special Collections), Roderic Crooks (assistant professor of informatics, UC Irvine), Dalena Hunter (librarian, Bunche Center for African American Studies, UCLA), and Shani Miller (metadata and digital processing coordinator, UCLA Ethnomusicology Archive).

2001: A Space Odyssey 50th Anniversary Panel
UPDATED: Thu, Jul 12, 09:14AM
Warner Bros. Home Entertainment (WBHE) and the Arthur C. Clarke Society take a look back across a half-century (and the distant universe) to celebrate one of the most iconic films in history. Panelists will examine Stanley Kubrick's science fiction masterpiece, which WBHE will release on 4K Ultra High Definition (UHD) Blu-ray in premium collectible packaging and 4K UHD Digital this fall. Kubrick's Academy Award-winning achievement is a compelling drama of man vs. machine, a stunning meld of music and motion. Kubrick (who co-wrote the screenplay with Clarke) first visits our prehistoric ape-ancestry past, then leaps millennia (via one of the most mind-blowing jump cuts ever) into colonized space, and ultimately whisks astronaut Bowman (Keir Dullea) into uncharted space, perhaps even into immortality. For the first time since its original release, new 70mm prints were struck from pristine printing elements made from the original camera negative. A longtime admirer of the late American auteur, Christopher Nolan worked closely with the team at Warner Bros. Pictures throughout the mastering process. Building on the work done for the new 70mm prints, the 4K UHD with HDR presentation was mastered from the 65mm original camera negative. The stars of the film— Keir Dullea and Gary Lockwood—and an impressive array of scholars give attendees a glimpse at the remastered footage and a lively discussion of this landmark film. The panelists include Sheldon Brown (director of the UCSD Arthur C. Clarke Center for Human Imagination, visual arts professor), David Brin (Hugo and Nebula Award-winning science fiction writer, PhD physicist), Wu Yan (world renowned Chinese science fiction author), Matt Grob PhD (chief technology officer XCOM Corporation, communications engineer), Laurel Riek (UC San Diego professor of robotics), Shelley Streeby (UC San Diego professor of literature, specialist in science fiction) and Paul Jacobs (CEO and founder of XCOM). Erik Viirre, M.D. PhD (UCSD Arthur C. Clarke Center for Human Imagination, physician and neuroscientist) will moderate the panel. 2001: A Space Odyssey will be available on 4K UHD from WBHE on October 30.

UPDATED: Thu, Jul 12, 03:18PM

Production Designer: Architect of the Imagination
The production designer reads 100 pages of nothing-but-words-on-paper and then must literally dream up the most perfect of all possible worlds in which the tale should take place. Though the story may be set in some mythic past, the here and now, or some nearly unimaginable future, it's always human emotion rendered in color and composition. And following that, the designer must gather and organize an army of artists who, over months or years, in plaster or in pixels, will somehow render that design for the big screen. Featuring Richard Bridgland (The Commuter, American Ultra), Scott Chambliss (Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 2, Tomorrowland), Howard Cummings (Westworld, Percy Jackson & the Olympians: The Lightning Thief), Naomi Shohan (A Wrinkle in Time, The Walk), and moderator John Muto (Home Alone, Species).

Women Rocking Hollywood 2018: Female Filmmakers, Pilots, Projects, and Paving the Way to Parity
The last year saw some forward movement for equality in front of and behind the camera. Women directors helmed more TV pilots than ever before. Will that trend continue? Will it result in more woman-directed and gender-balanced shows? In 2018, still only a fraction of studio films were directed by women, so how can lasting change be made? Some of the most successful, talented women in the industry will discuss their careers, latest projects, new initiatives, and how fans can be part of creating equality in film, TV, and all transmedia. Panelists include Lesli Linka Glatter (producer/director, Homeland, The Walking Dead), Kat Candler (showrunner/director, Queen Sugar, 12 Monkeys), Patricia Cardoso (director, Queen Sugar, Real Women Have Curves), Rosemary Rodriguez (producer/director, pilot Cagney & Lacey, Jessica Jones, The Walking Dead), Regina King (actress/director/producer, pilot The Finest, Shameless, Scandal), Patricia Riggen (producer/director, The 33, Jack Ryan), and Kirsten Schaffer (executive director, Women in Film: LA).
