Please share widely with the community, we would love for these films to be seen!
Your film choices are as follows:
I Am Not Your Negro - Master filmmaker Raoul Peck envisions the book James Baldwin never finished, Remember This House. The result is a radical, up-to-the-minute examination of race in America, using Baldwin’s original words and flood of rich archival material. I Am Not Your Negro is a journey into black history that connects the past of the Civil Rights movement to the present of #BlackLivesMatter. RENT NOW
Raise Hell: The Life and Times of Molly Ivins - Raise Hell tells the story of media firebrand Molly Ivins, six feet of Texas trouble who took on the Good Old Boy corruption wherever she found it. Her razor sharp wit left both sides of the aisle laughing, and craving ink in her columns. RENT NOW
Gonzo - A film covering the life and times of Hunter S. Thompson. If you're a fan of Hunter S. Thompson, or gonzo journalism in general, this film is definitely for you. Expect a rad soundtrack to go along with it. RENT NOW
Toni Morrison: The Pieces I Am - An artful and intimate meditation on the life and works of the legendary storyteller and Nobel prize-winner. From her childhood in the steel town of Lorain, Ohio, to ʼ70s-era book tours with Muhammad Ali, from the front lines with Angela Davis to her own riverfront writing room — Toni Morrison leads an assembly of her peers, critics and colleagues on an exploration of race, America, history and the human condition as seen through the prism of her own literature.
