Notable filmmakers envision a new Santa Barbara Plaza: Film fest and community meeting on Marlton Square Sept. 14

First a vision of what could be on a 20 acre lot in the middle of South Los Angeles, brought to you by Ben Caldwaell, Julie Dash, Khary Jones and Regina Kimball and students who live in the area.

Then a call to action about what to do about Santa Barbara Plaza, nee Marlton Square, which has been in redevelopment limbo for 20 years.

It happens from 6 to 8 p.m. Sept. 14 at Dorsey High School Auditorium.

The short films have quite the names behind them:
• Caldwell is from Kaos Network/Project Blowed;
• Dash' Daughters of Dust," National Film Registry, her feature film joins a select group of American films preserved as National Treasures;
• Kimball did the documentary “My Nappy Roots: A Journey Through Black Hair-itage;”
• And Jones was named by indieWire as one of the "10 Exciting New Voices in Black Cinema."

Youth leaders included Kyle Guy, Eric
Brooks,   Aja
Dawson, Krystle
GardnerMatthew
Hill, Ryan
Jade, Montel
Jones, Kandance Redd, Ahkim
Shockley, Christopher
Tyeson, Isaiah
Wheeler and Deron
