I Am Not Your Negro

Tue, Feb 28 / 6 pm & 9 pm (SOLD OUT!)
Directed by Raoul Peck
2016, USA, 95 min

On Tuesday, February 28th, 2017 Winnipeg Cinematheque in association with Black Space Winnipeg and Assiniboine Credit Union is pleased to screen the critically acclaimed film, I Am Not Your Negro. Written by James Baldwin, director Raoul Peck brings the unfinished manuscript Remember This House by Baldwin in the anticipated documentary of the year. Black Space Winnipeg celebrates 28 days of Black history both local and abroad. We encourage the public to come and engage with an important film that not only challenges the direct blatant racism within American society, but the contemporary politeness of how racism manifests within systems of institutionalized discrimination.

There will be a double screening at 6pm and 9pm with a panel discussion taking place in Platform Gallery at 8pm. Panelists include Winnipeg blogger Natalie Bell (@PegCityLovely); RWB faculty and performance artist, Eugene Baffoe (@genieboss); and Morgan James (@mj_wpg), former programming director of Rhythm 107, and founder of the forthcoming station 204 The Vibe. The panel will be moderated by Black Space Winnipeg founder Alexa Potashnik. Complementary refreshments will be provided.

We look forward to share an educational and enlightening evening with you.
