What You Gonna Do When the World’s On Fire?

Ongoing

Location: Bartos Screening Room

Dir. Roberto Minervini. 2018, 123 mins. Digital projection. Summer 2017, a string of brutal police killings of young African American men has sent shockwaves throughout the country. Centered around the charismatic and fiercely honest Judy Hill, a bar owner in Treme, New Orleans, and two young brothers vigilantly looking out for each other, a tight-knit community tries to cope with the lingering effects of the past and navigate their place in a country that is not on their side. Meanwhile in Jackson, Mississippi, the Black Panthers prepare a large-scale protest against police brutality. The latest collaborative documentary from Roberto Minervini (The Other Side) is a blistering meditation on the state of race in America. View trailer.
