F.I.L.M. Series: Raoul Peck Presents I Am Not Your Negro
The fall F.I.L.M. (Forum on Image and Language in Motion) series continues on Sunday, Oct. 29, when Raoul Peck presents I Am Not Your Negro (2016). This and all F.I.L.M. series events take place on Sunday afternoons at 2 p.m., in Bradford Auditorium, KJ. All are free and open to the public.
Pioneering director and writer Raoul Peck has spent a lifetime using film to tackle historical events and tough subject matter, while still engaging audiences politically, artistically, and socially.
Peck’s Oscar nominated I Am Not Your Negro focuses on James Baldwin and is based on Baldwin’s unfinished manuscript Remember This House.
According to Peck, “If you take any books of Baldwin and start reading, you’re not reading about the past, you’re reading about today; it’s as if he’s reacting to current news items.”
Recently, the on-line media journal IndieWire, listed I Am Not Your Negro as one of the top five documentaries of the 21st century.
