(U.S., 2016) Directed by Ava DuVernay, 100 min., rated TV-MA
The U.S. makes up 5% of the world’s population, yet locks up 25% of the world’s prisoners. Ava DuVernay’s Oscar-nominated documentary—a “crucial and stirring document,” according to Variety— explores how we got here.
The Communities First Inc. Culture Shock program, in partnership with the FIA, presents the first two selections (Floyd Norman: An Animated Life, 11.14.17; 13th, December 14) in a four-title series dealing with African American themes and culture. A 5:30p reception will precede each screening.
