Dir. Ryan Coogler. 2018, 134 mins. DCP. With Chadwick Boseman, Michael B. Jordan, Lupita Nyong'o. Picking up the Marvel superhero Black Panther's story, T'Challa (Chadwick Boseman) inherits the throne of Wakanda, a hidden African nation with superior technological advances and rich in vibranium, a valuable and powerful metal. As T'Challa wrestles with competitors for the throne and the decision about whether to share Wakanda's resources with the rest of the world, he is protected by a group of women with superior skills of their own, including his genius younger sister Shuri (Letitia Wright), who creates the gadgets he uses to defend himself, and Okoye (Danai Gurira), the strong and intimidating head of the royal guard. Black Panther is a true hero's journey that provides diverse role models and will leave you saying "Wakanda forever!" Recommended for ages 12 and up. 

A special presentation of the student film A True Bronx Tale (2018, 5 mins.) will be screened just before the feature film, organized and presented by MoMI Summer Youth Interns. Directed by young media artists Souadou Berry and Gwenever Placers, this short film won the best documentary award in the 2018 SONYC film festival. Documenting the life and experiences of residents living in Bronx public housing, A True Bronx Tale shares issues and sensibilities from people seeking solutions.
