Join us for a conversation on Hollywood, the Oscars, and alternative voices in film on Tuesday, Feb. 25. We will be having a discussion with film critic Bill Meyer and others. Who are the nominees? What is a progressive view of Hollywood film? In a year with so many stellar performances in, and directors of Black-themed movies that deserved Oscar attention, why did they go ignored?
