L.A. Rebellion

A guide to UCLA Library resources related to the L.A. Rebellion film movement, including books, articles, moving images, and more.

L. A. Rebellion Oral Histories

As part of the L.A. Rebellion initiative, between 2010-2011 the Archive conducted several oral histories with many filmmakers who were part of this movement. Transcripts of these interviews are available as a PDF.  Please contact the Archive Research and Study Center for more information. Video recordings of the interviews are available for on-site viewing only in the Powell Library Media Lab located on the UCLA campus. Please contact the Archive Research and Study Center to schedule an appointment.

These oral histories are a spoken account of certain events and phenomena recorded at one particular moment and filtered through one individual's life experience, sensibility and memory. As such, it should be considered a primary source rather than a final, verified or complete narrative of the events it records.

These interviews are being made available for private study, scholarship and research purposes only, and no part of any transcript or audio may be reproduced, disseminated or quoted for publication without citing the UCLA Film & Television Archive as the creator of the work.  

In your citation, please include the following information, formatting will depend on which style of documentation you use:

[Name of Interview Subject], [Name of Interviewees], L.A. Rebellion Collection, UCLA Film & Television Archive, Los Angeles, [Month, Day, Year].
