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.
