Dir. Raoul Peck | Documentary | U.S.A. | 2016 | 95 min. | Rated PG-13
James Baldwin’s final manuscript was to be a revolutionary and personal look at race in America, but he died with only 30 pages written. Master filmmaker Raoul Peck (Lumumba, Sometimes in April) envisions the book Baldwin never finished, in this incisive and gripping look at black history from the Civil Rights movement to #BlackLivesMatter. This scorching and unforgettable Oscar-nominated film challenges the very definition of what America stands for.
“You would be hard-pressed to find a movie that speaks
to the present moment with greater clarity and force...”
