I Am Not Your Negro - Special Limited Season

After a sell-out show at this year’s Sydney Film Festival, this incredible film is coming back to The Ritz for a special limited season! Narrated by Samuel L Jackson, this mesmerising Oscar-nominated film channels the impassioned words of writer James Baldwin, one of the most incisive commentators on race in America.

People's Choice Documentary Award-winner at Toronto, Oscar-nominated and a box office success in the US, I Am Not Your Negro takes as its starting point notes for a book Baldwin intended to write about the lives and assassinations of his friends Malcolm X, Martin Luther King Jr., and Medgar Evers. That unwritten book finds life in this remarkable film which melds Baldwin's unpublished writing (powerfully narrated by Jackson), archival footage of his eloquent analysis of the times, and contemporary Black Lives Matter protests. Haitian Peck (Lumumba; Moloch Tropical, SFF 2010) is a stridently political filmmaker and here his profound and poetic cine-essay is, as The New York Times describes it, "life-altering".

Transcendent … Raoul Peck's I Am Not Your Negro is the rare movie that might be called a spiritual documentary.
– Owen Gleiberman, Variety

It is a striking work of storytelling. By assembling the scattered images and historical clips suggested by Baldwin's writing, I Am Not Your Negro is a cinematic séance, and one of the best movies about the civil rights era ever made.
– Jordan Hoffman, The Guardian

Screening at The Ritz from Thursday September 14.
