FILM at LACMA presents classic and contemporary narrative and documentary films, artists and their influences, emerging auteurs, international showcases, special guest-curated programs, and conversations with artists and special guests.

LACMA members are invited to join FILM at LACMA for a special screening of Descendant, and a post-screening conversation with director and producer Margaret Brown, and producers Essie Chambers and Kyle Martin.

Documentary filmmaker Margaret Brown (The Order of MythsThe Great Invisible) returns to her hometown of Mobile, Alabama to document the search for and historic discovery of The Clotilda, the last known ship to arrive in the United States illegally carrying enslaved Africans. After a century of secrecy and speculation, the 2019 discovery of the ship turns attention toward the descendant community of Africatown and presents a moving portrait of a community actively grappling with and fighting to preserve their heritage while examining what justice looks like today.

Watch the official trailer.

You will receive a link to view the film on the event date.

Descendant is in select theaters and streaming now on Netflix.

This screening is hosted by Slipstream, a LACMA-approved third-party screening platform. If you have not previously registered with Slipstream, you will be asked to provide a valid email address and set a password to create an account.
