About the event
Celebrating The Films of Ray Balberan and Mission Mediarts
Conscious Youth Media Crew (CYMC), in collaboration with The Ray Balberan Mission Mediarts Archive (RBMMA) and Brava Theater, proudly presents “Mission Love”, an evening of unique and rarely seen 16mm films featuring selections from Ray Balberan’s work as a filmmaker with the Mission Mediarts film collective founded in 1971.
Mission Mediarts was formed as a Mission District community-based youth media training program, made up of Indigenous, Latino, African American, and Asian-Pacific Islander students, artists, and working-class residents who documented their hopes, aspirations, and artistic, cultural, and political expression taking place in their neighborhood during the seventies and early eighties. Mission Mediarts created community access to the airwaves along with resources and youth employment in the local television industry.
Come and show your Mission Love and support, and join us for a night of cinematic storytelling.
This event is produced by CYMC, Film Activation Fund, Mission Love Presents + the Ray Balberan Mission Mediarts Archive (Vero Majano, Debra Koffler, Loriz Ginger Godines, and Ray Balberan).
This project was made possible with support from California Humanities, a non-profit partner of the National Endowment for the Humanities. Visit www.calhum.org
