Film Series: Fruitvale Station

2013. USA. Dir: Ryan Coogler. With Michael B. Jordan. 85 min.

This slice-of-life drama offers a nuanced portrayal of Oscar Grant, the victim of a racially-charged 2008 murder, on his last day alive. Coogler earnestly seeks to tackle who Grant was as a man, presenting the good, the bad, and everything in between while building incrementally to a devastating climax with echoes of the recent Trayvon Martin case. Intro by AFAM Majors Committee.

Tonight. 8pm. Goldsmith Family Cinema. $5.
