This Week

Hale County This Morning, This Evening | Screening and Q&A
Mon. Apr 8, 7-9pm

Metcalf Auditorium, Brown University
190 Thayer Street


Brown Arts Student Council (BASC) is excited to present a screening of Hale County This Morning, This Evening (dir. RaMell Ross). Nominated for Best Documentary at the 91st Academy Awards, Ross employs the integrity of nonfiction filmmaking and the currency of stereotypical imagery to fill in the gaps between individual black male icons. Hale County This Morning, This Evening draws from the visual language of portraiture but breaks from its historically racist aesthetic frameworks to expand the possibilities for expression of African American men on film. It also received the Special Jury Award for Creative Vision at the 2018 Sundance Film Festival. Please register for a free ticket here.
