Raoul Peck’s radical new documentary that deftly explores the engendered racism in modern America as told through the writings of author James Baldwin releases its official trailer. One of our good buddies Glenn Dunks has seen the film and raved about how powerful it is.
Synopsis: In his new film, director Raoul Peck envisions the book James Baldwin never finished – a radical narration about race in America, using the writer’s original words. He draws upon James Baldwin’s notes on the lives and assassinations of Medgar Evers, Malcolm X, and Martin Luther King Jr. to explore and bring a fresh and radical perspective to the current racial narrative in America.
“One of the best movies you are likely to see this year.”
