I Am Not Your Negro
Haitian filmmaker Raoul Peck’s brilliant documentary on racism in America is an essential work for our era, drawing a clear line from the Civil Rights struggle to today’s Black Lives Matter movement via the thought of James Baldwin, one of America’s most lucid, fearless thinkers. Based on Baldwin’s unfinished manuscript “Remember This House,” I Am Not Your Negro analyzes white denial and black experience of racial oppression in a historical and contemporary context. 93 minutes.
Hosted by PLU’s Department of Languages & Literatures. Tournées Film Festival is made possible with the support of the Cultural Services of the French Embassy in the U.S., the Centre National du Cinéma et de l’Image Animée (CNC), the French American Cultural Fund, Florence Gould Foundation and Highbrow Entertainment.
