The Flying Ace Agenda

When: Wed., Jan. 30, 7:30 p.m. 2013

Rarely screened since its original 1926 release and currently not available on DVD, The Flying Ace is a classic example of a "race film," meaning it was intended for black audiences. With its all-African-American cast, it tells the story of a World War I pilot—based on African-American aviatrix Bessie Coleman—who investigates the disappearance of his town's railroad paymaster. Hosting the event is the Northwest Chicago Film Society.
