OSCAR NOMINEE FOR BEST DOCUMENTARY
I AM NOT YOUR NEGRO
From revered Haitian director Raoul Peck
Opens February 3 in Miami at O Cinema Wynwood and Regal South Beach 18
"One of the best movies you are likely to see this year." – Manohla Dargis, The New York Times
"A mesmerizing cinematic experience." – Kenneth Turan, Los Angeles Times
In 1979, author and activist James Baldwin wrote a letter to his literary agent describing his next project, Remember This House. The book was to be a revolutionary, personal account of the lives and successive assassinations of three of his close friends—Medgar Evers, Malcolm X and Martin Luther King, Jr.
At the time of Baldwin's death in 1987, he left behind only thirty completed pages of his manuscript.
Now, in his incendiary new documentary, master filmmaker Raoul Peck envisions the book James Baldwin never finished. The result is a radical, up-to-the-minute examination of race in America using and flood of rich archival material and Baldwin's original words articulated through the voice of Samuel L. Jackson.
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 these three leaders, Baldwin and Peck have produced a work that challenges the very definition of what America stands for.
Starts Friday, February 3rd at O Cinema Wynwood and Regal South Beach 18
This is a Magnolia Pictures/Amazon Studios release. Rated PG-13.

Hope on a String works to engage and empower youth and communities in Haiti under the firmly held belief that the arts are a tool for social change. Through Hope on a String, individuals participate in a wide variety of music classes, instrument lessons, performance groups, theater and dance initiatives, as well as skill-building workshops and participatory development initiatives. Participants work to build individual confidence, collective pride, powerful relationships, and skills needed to succeed as leaders within the community. Ultimately, we help them identify and fulfill aspirations that create brighter futures for themselves, their families, and their neighborhoods. We invest in locally driven change, and seek to have a long-term impact on a national level by developing a scalable model for social development in Haiti.
