Red Film Club


There will be no Film Club in August.

The autumn programme starts on Sunday 3rd September.


7.30 Sunday September 3rd I am not your Negro (2016)
A meticulously woven story of the civil rights movement at a critical juncture in its history, based on James Baldwin’s unfinished manuscript ‘Remember This House’. The documentary focuses on the lives of three central leaders of that movement in the 1960s, Medgar Evers, Martin Luther King Jr. and Malcom X, their lives tragically cut short by assassinations, killings that strategically weakened the movement and from which it never recovered. Directed by Raoul Peck and narrated by Samuel L. Jackson.


The bar will open at 7 pm.

Admission free, donations welcome.
