Summer for the City screenings at Lincoln Center’s Damrosch Park
The Summer for the City outdoor film series, which will be held in Damrosch Park, promises to delight and stimulate moviegoers with a three-film showcase of Terence Blanchard’s illustrious and prolific career as a composer of film scores, in connection with “See Me As I Am,” LCPA’s year-long, campus-wide celebration of the pioneering musician.
Summer for the City also includes “Can’t Stop the Street: Hip Hop on Screen,” a five-film sidebar as part of a campus-wide celebration honoring hip hop’s 50th anniversary, exploring and paying tribute to the myriad ways in which hip hop’s history, cultural innovations, and guiding creative voices have influenced and intersected with American cinema over the last half-century.
