2014. USA. Dir: Justin Simien. With Tessa Thompson. 108 min.
At a prestigious, predominantly white university starting with the letter “W,” black students struggle to overcome systemic injustice and make their distinct voices heard… This film’s comedic chaos hits close to home, provoking chuckles and cringes of recognition in equal measure, and inventively sparking necessary debate without claiming easy solutions. The screening will be followed by a discussion, hosted by The Ankh.
