Come to our AVA-Berlin movie night on Saturday night, April 15, for a screening of ‘I Am Not Your Negro’ by Raoul Peck. The film will begin at 7:30 pm at the Lichtblick Kino, Kastanienallee 77, and will be followed by a discussion with artist and writer ISAIAH LOPAZ. Thanks to the Lichtblick, profits from the €10 ticket sales will go to the American Civil Liberties Union. Extra donations are, of course, always welcome!
“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.”
