PROXY + HERE FOR NOW FALL FILM FESTIVAL
I Am Not Your Negro
Directed by Raoul Peck, 2016 [PG-13]
“An astonishing, often challenging and sharp examination of race in the United States” —Globe & Mail
In 1979, James Baldwin wrote to his literary agent describing his next project, Remember This House, 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. At the time of Baldwin’s death in 1987, he left behind only thirty pages of his manuscript. In this incendiary new documentary, filmmaker Raoul Peck envisions the book James Baldwin never finished: a radical, up-to-the-minute examination of race in America, confronting the deeper connections between the lives and assassination of these three leaders, the civil rights movement, and #BlackLivesMatter.
