Until May 1, Watch the Documentary “Zora Neale Hurston: Jump at the Sun”

Vodpod videos no longer available.

That’s right. Until May 1, 2010, California Newsreel is allowing viewers, educators and librarians to preview this film for purchase in their own institutions.

Zora Neale Hurston: Jump at the Sun was an 18-year labor of love to produce and it is nearly 90 minutes long.

What is California Newsreel?

California Newsreel produces and distributes cutting edge, social justice films that inspire, educate and engage audiences. Founded in 1968, Newsreel is the oldest non-profit, social issue documentary film center in the country, the first to marry media production and contemporary social movements.

We are a leading resource center for the advancement of racial justice and diversity, and the study of African American life and history as well as African culture and politics. In 2006, we launched a new thematic focus for our work: the Global Economy, with an emphasis on the international division of labor. In the years ahead we look forward to continuing our traditions of innovation and responsible advocacy by providing films that help inform, educate and organize.

Their main page is here. You’d be surprised at what they have available.

Check it out.
