Join MFA Film for a screening of «The Murder of Fred Hampton,» co-presented with Roxbury International Film Festival and part of the UCLA Festival of Preservation!

The 1971 documentary was made by a group of independent filmmakers in Chicago, fashioning themselves as The Film Group. They set out to profile Fred Hampton, the charismatic 21-year-old leader of the Illinois chapter of the Black Panther Party, and ended up documenting the last nine months of his life.

The film will be preceded by a screening of «The Jungle» (1967, 35mm), a short documentary created by inner city high school students in North Philadelphia through a project initiated by Temple University social worker Harold Haskins. With the students creating everything from the credits to the soundtrack, this short is an early example of modern, independent African American filmmaking that shows a unique view into street life through the lens of gang members themselves.

The UCLA Festival of Preservation is produced by the UCLA Film & Television Archive, celebrating the science and spirit of film conservation and showcasing films that have been rescued from extinction by the skilled conservators who work tirelessly to protect them. This year's festival screens at the Museum of Fine Arts, Boston from January 18–31: bit.ly/2lFgbo3
