A Blade of Grass x ALL ARTS

We are pleased to announce our partnership with ALL ARTS, an arts and cultural platform created by WNET, to release a curated series of A Blade of Grass Films that explore the beauty, range, and impact of socially engaged artists, produced in collaboration with RAVA Films. Organized by month-long themes of Black Self-Determination, Criminal Justice, Cultural Identity, and Alternative Futures, beginning July 27th through November 2020, a new film will be released on Monday each week, including the premier of films for artists Jordan Weber, Gregory Sale, Miguel Luciano, and Frances Whitehead.

A Blade of Grass Films will be available to stream, for free, via a dedicated page on allarts.org; ALL ARTS mobile (Apple and Android) and streaming (Apple TV, Roku, and Amazon Fire) apps; and, in the New York tri-state area, broadcast on the ALL ARTS channel.
