2017 Academy Award nomination – Best Documentary

Post-show conversation: Helen Neville, Aaron Ammons, Sunny Ture, Maryam Ar-Raheem

Haitian filmmaker Raoul Peck has taken the 30 completed pages of James Baldwin’s final, unfinished manuscript, Remember This House, in which the author went about the painful task of remembering his three fallen friends Medgar Evers, Malcolm X, and Martin Luther King, and crafted an elegantly precise and bracing film essay. Peck’s film, about the unholy agglomeration of myths, institutionalized practices both legal and illegal, and displaced white terror that have long perpetuated the tragic state of race in America, is anchored by the presence of Baldwin himself in images and words, read beautifully by Samuel L. Jackson in hushed, burning tones. (2017, Raoul Peck, NR, 95 min, DCP)

“It is a striking work of storytelling. By assembling the scattered images and historical clips suggested by Baldwin’s writing, I Am Not Your Negro is a cinematic séance, and one of the best movies about the civil rights era ever made.” —The Guardian

“Raoul Peck’s I Am Not Your Negro is the rare movie that might be called a spiritual documentary.” —Variety

“It is a searing and topical indictment of racial prejudice and hatred in America that makes for uneasy viewing and is not easily forgotten.” —The Hollywood Reporter
