SDPL Central Library says
After being abandoned by her fiancé, Sylvia Landry dedicates herself to saving a nearly bankrupt school for poor children. Directed by Oscar Micheaux and stars Evelyn Preer, Flo Clements, and James D. Ruffin. Silent. 79 minutes. 1920.

Provocative on many levels, Within Our Gate's depiction of racial and gender violence invoked the ire of many censorship boards before its release. It is widely considered an important portrait of the African American experience post World War I.

Scott Paulson is an award-winning soundscape artist who has been heard on radio, television, and film. His performance ensemble, the Teeny-Tiny Pit Orchestra, provides live music and sounds for silent film screenings, ballet productions, radio dramas, operas, and theatrical productions. Scott is the Exhibits & Events Coordinator at the UC San Diego Library, for which he founded and directs various festivals: The Short Attention Span Chamber Music Series, the annual Toy Piano Festival, The Not-So-Silent Film Festival, and a Paper Theatre Festival.

Picture This is a cinematic celebration that offers a diverse array of both narrative and documentary film. It strives to be socially engaging, culturally relevant, and informative while still being fun and entertaining. Picture This will at times provide added features to its screenings in the form of guest speakers, discussion panels, concerts, and other eclectic programming.
