Les Blank Lecture: Yance Ford

Yance Ford presents the third annual Les Blank Lecture at BAMPFA, in honor of the beloved local documentary filmmaker. Yance discusses his creative process and his 2017 film Strong Island. The murder of the filmmaker’s brother forms the basis of this vivid and unsettling documentary on one family’s suffering and an entire society’s injustice and institutional racism.

Presented as part of Documentary Voices 2018, and made possible by the Les Blank Fund.
