Among the luminaries who appear in Isaac Julien's film about black independent filmmaking in the '70s, Quentin Tarantino and Samuel L. Jackson are the owners of perhaps the baddest asses. But Julien's is pretty bad too. He is a man who wears many hats — hats that include but are by no means limited to movies, installation art, and academia. His latest effort examines the "blaxploitation" movement and complements his installation True North, on display at the Akron Art Museum through October 3. The screening begins at 6:30 p.m. tonight in the Lehner Auditorium. The museum is at 1 South High Street in Akron. Learn more by calling 330-376-9185 or visit akronartmuseum.org. — Allard
