Banned during the Giuliani era, “As an Act of Protest” makes its return to New York 15 years later on November 2, 2017 for a revival film screening at the Richard Beavers Gallery in Brooklyn, NY at 7pm.
Admission is $8 plus there will be a Q&A session with director Dennis Leroy Kangalee and co-star Mtume Gant. The screening is presented by The Luminal Theater.
Deemed the 'Best black film no one will see' in 2002 by culture critic Kam Williams, "As an Act of Protest" is a cinematic poem about racism and its psychological effects. The film follows Cairo Medina, a young African American actor, who goes through a station-of-the-cross journey to find the meaning of his life and eradicate the racism and police brutality that continue to plague the world.
