Cinema | “I Am Not Your Negro“
Tuesday 18 April 18:30-20:30
Part of the Raoul Peck, Chronicles of an Exile Film Series at the Institut Français in Edinburgh.
The Haiti Support Group will present on 18 April and 16 May.
In 1979, James Baldwin wrote a letter to his literary agent describing his next project, “Remember This House.” The book was to be a revolutionary, personal account of the lives and 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 30 completed pages of this manuscript. Filmmaker Raoul Peck envisions the book James Baldwin never finished.
The film will be preceded by an introduction to Raoul Peck, Chronicles of an Exile and the work of the Haiti Support Group by our Chair Shodona Kettle.
Director: Raoul Peck (USA – 2016 – 93 mins – Documentary)
