Little Satchmo is an intimate exploration of the iconic Louis Armstrong’s life and legacy through his relationship with the daughter that the public never knew existed. Based on a revealing memoir written by Armstrong’s silent daughter, the film seeks to correct a historical narrative relying on caricature for too long.
Louis Daniel Armstrong, nicknamed “Satchmo”, had an illustrious career that spanned five decades. Due to his unique music styling, charisma, and gritty vocals, he is credited with changing the focus of jazz music from “collective improvisation” to solo performance. With an eye for the ladies, Armstrong had several failed marriages but remained with his fourth wife Lucille Wilson until his death in 1971. During his marriage to Wilson, Armstrong had a long time affair with Lucille Preston. Together they had a daughter, Sharon, who Louis lovingly called “Little Satchmo”. To protect them and his career, Lucille and Sharon lived in the shadows of his limelight.

Utah Film Center is excited to announce our upcoming free film screening of Hidden Letters Wednesday, February 8 at 7 pm at the Salt Lake Downtown Public Library.
Presented as part of the Utah Film Center’s Through the Lens Series and in partnership with KUER’s Radiowest, Hidden Letters is a story of two Chinese women trying to balance their lives as independent women in modern China while confronting the traditional identity that defines but also oppresses them.
For thousands of years women who were often forced into oppressive marriages and forbidden to read or write, shared a secret language among themselves called Nushu. Written with delicate strokes made from sharpened bamboo sticks dipped in ink, Nushu bonded generations of Chinese women in a clandestine support system of sisterhood and survival.
Join us afterward as KUER’s Radiowest host, Doug Fabrizio, hosts a lively discussion with film director, Violet Du Feng via zoom cinematically exploring China’s gender issues as portrayed by this sensitive and stirring documentary.

As part of our Black, Bold & Brilliant series, Utah Film Center, in partnership with KRCL is excited to announce our upcoming film screening and post-discussion of BEBA. Join us Wednesday, March 1st from 7-9 pm at The City Library in Downtown Salt Lake City in watching first-time feature filmmaker Rebecca “Beba” Huntt undertake an unflinching exploration of her own identity in the remarkable coming-of-age documentary/cinematic memoir BEBA.
Reflecting on her childhood and adolescence in New York City as the daughter of a Dominican father and Venezuelan mother, Huntt investigates the historical, societal, and generational trauma she’s inherited and ponders how those ancient wounds have shaped her, while simultaneously considering the universal truths that connect us all as humans. Throughout BEBA, Huntt searches for a way to forge her own creative path amid a landscape of intense racial and political unrest. Poetic, powerful and profound, BEBA is a courageous, deeply human self-portrait of an Afro-Latina artist hungry for knowledge and yearning for connection.
We invite you to stay after the screening for a Black, Bold & Brilliant team post-film Q&A featuring film director Rebecca Huntt via zoom.

Join the Utah Film Center on Wednesday, March 15 at 7 pm at the Rose Wagner Performing Arts Center for a screening of the newly premiered film, The Right to Read, featuring local Utah filmmaker Jenny Mackenzie.
Presented as part of the Utah Film Center’s Through the Lens Spring Series and in partnership with KUER’s Radiowest, The Right to Read highlights the challenges of improving literacy rates in the US among children, particularly, those from Black and Brown communities.
The Right to Read follows Oakland NAACP activist, Kareem Weaver, who believes literacy is our most important civil right. With a focus on Black and brown children, Kareem demands Oakland schools bring in science-based reading instruction. First-grade teacher Sabrina Causey becomes one of his most critical allies. Despite heated debates on reading instruction, parents and advocates work to increase literacy rates throughout the country. In Virginia Beach, Teresa trains parents in oral language skills to prepare their children for kindergarten. In rural Mississippi, where only 21% of children can read, Melinda looks at educational technology to help her child receive vital reading skills.
Join us afterward as KUER’s Radiowest host, Doug Fabrizio, hosts a lively discussion with film director, Jenny Mackenzie talking about the challenges of improving literacy rates in the US among children, particularly, those from Black and Brown communities.
