Details

A film screening of Raoul Peck’s Academy Award-nominated documentary 'I Am Not Your Negro' organised by The Stuart Hall Foundation in collaboration with Merton College, Oxford University and The Oxford Research Centre in the Humanities (TORCH).

In his incendiary documentary, master filmmaker Raoul Peck envisions the book James Baldwin never finished. 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.

The film screening will be followed by a discussion with the award-winning filmmaker Isaac Julien, and writer Caryl Phillips, moderated by Professor Alison Donnell (University of East Anglia). Taking the film and James Baldwin’s work as a starting point, the speakers will discuss their own work and a life of an intellectual dissident in relation to art, politics and activism.

The event is free of charge, but due to limited availability pre-booking is essential. Please note that the screening will commence at 2pm sharp.
