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:

• 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;”
