I Am Not Your Negro
Film - Feature | September 14 | 7 p.m. | Berkeley Art Museum and Pacific Film Archive
Race, power, and film collide in Raoul Pecks invigorating look at the great writer James Baldwin, whose powerful investigations on American culture and racism were written decades ago, but whose words matter now more than ever (Manuel Betancourt, Esquire). Based on Baldwins unfinished manuscript Remember This House, which eulogized Martin Luther King Jr., Malcolm X, and Medgar Evers, and his essays on Hollywood and race, I Am Not Your Negro may technically be telling the story of civil rights in 1960s America, butthrough clips from Ferguson, Black Lives Matter, and moreit seems sorrowfully urgent and utterly necessary today.
