So proud to announce our new partnership with Bed-Stuy's own RICHARD BEAVERS GALLERY!

With this collaboration, you'll be getting weekly access to diverse cinema of the African diaspora right here in Brooklyn throughout the end of the year.   Our FREE kickoff film for this partnership launch is the Ousmane Sembene classic:

BLACK GIRL   (1966)
A young Senegalese woman (M’Bissine Thérèse Diop) who moves to France to work for a wealthy white family and finds that life in their small apartment becomes a prison, both figuratively and literally—into a complexly layered critique of the lingering colonialist mind-set of a supposedly postcolonial world.
