Don’t miss the Cineclub free community screening of The New Black at a/perture Monday (May 14) at 7:30 p.m.
Yoruba Richen has woven together a moving story with personal, historical, and political narrative threads to form a powerful documentary about struggles within the African American community over gay rights. A specific focus of the film is a ballot initiative in Maryland over gay marriage.
Just so you know, I like the film even better than the trailer, and the trailer isn’t bad.
The New Black will air on PBS’s Independent Lens series on June 15, but see it first at a/perture. Cineclub is a year-round partnership between the RiverRun International Film festival and a/perture.
