Attention Romeo wannabes and aspiring Lotharios: as part of its "Best of the African Diaspora Film Festival," BAMcinematek will screen Mya B’s four-part documentary, "Silence: In Search of Black Female Sexuality." The Fort Greene filmmaker’s doc, which explores issues of female sexuality in black culture, will be screened on Valentine’s Day at 6:50 pm (followed by a Q&A with Mya B., pictured) and Feb. 15 at 4:30 pm.

In "Silence," black women in Chicago, of all ages, backgrounds and professions, speak out for the first time about their sexual wants, needs and desires, aiming to clarify historical sexual misconceptions about black women and reveal the truth about their sexuality in their own words.

BAMcinematek is located at 30 Lafayette Ave. at Ashland Place in Fort Greene. Tickets are $10; $7 for students 25 and under (with valid I.D. Monday through Thursday, except holidays) and seniors.
