HRWFF 17: I Am Not Your Negro + Q&A

Picturehouse Central is proud to host screenings for the 2017 Human Rights Watch Film Festival.

When James Baldwin died in 1987, he left behind only 30 completed pages of a book that was to be a revolutionary, personal account of the lives and successive assassinations of three of his close friends—Medgar Evers, Malcolm X and Martin Luther King, Jr. In I Am Not Your Negro, filmmaker Raoul Peck envisions the book James Baldwin never finished. The result is a radical, up-to-the-minute examination of race in America - a journey into black history connecting the evolution of the Civil Rights movement to the current immediacy of #BlackLivesMatter. By confronting the deeper connections between the lives and assassination of these three leaders, Baldwin and Peck have created a work that challenges the very definition of what America stands for.

2017 Academy Award® Nominee for Best Documentary Feature.

*Please note that the 9pm screening of I Am Not Your Negro has been added due to popular demand. While there is not a panel discussion or reception for this screening, there will be an introduction by Human Rights Watch Film Festival Creative Director, John Biaggi.
