I Am Not Your Negro

Showtimes: (11:30 am Sat + Sun); 2:15; 5:00; 7:20; 9:40

Using prolific writer James Baldwin’s unfinished novel “Remember This House,” filmmaker Raoul Peck provides a radical, up-to-the-minute examination of race in America, using Baldwin's original words and flood of rich archival material. I Am Not Your Negro is a journey into black history that connects the past of the Civil Rights movement to the present of #BlackLivesMatter. It is a film that questions black representation in Hollywood and beyond. And, ultimately, by confronting the deeper connections between the lives and assassination of civil rights leaders, Baldwin and Peck have produced a work that challenges the very definition of what America stands for.

Paterson

Showtimes: 1:20; 6:50

Paterson is a bus driver in the city of Paterson, New Jersey--they share the name. Every day, he adheres to a simple routine: he drives his route, observing the city as it drifts across his windshield and overhearing fragments of conversation swirling around him; he writes poetry into a notebook; he walks his dog; he stops in a bar and drinks exactly one beer; he goes home to his wife, Laura. By contrast, Laura's world is ever-changing. New dreams come to her almost daily. Paterson loves Laura and she loves him. He supports her newfound ambitions; she champions his gift for poetry. The film quietly observes the triumphs and defeats of daily life, along with the poetry evident in its smallest details.
