Afro Prairie Film Festival Presents: What You Gonna Do When the World’s On Fire?

Thu, May 16 / 7 pm
Directed by Roberto Minervini
2018, Italy/USA/France, 123 min

$10 ALL ADMISSIONS. NO PASSES.

The story of a community of black people in the American South during the summer 2017, when a string of brutal killings of young African American men sent shockwaves throughout the country. A meditation on the state of race in America, this film is an intimate portrait of the lives of those who struggle for justice, dignity, and survival in a country which is not on their side.

Presented in partnership with the Afro Prairie Film Festival.
