Brother to Brother – Tuesday, October 11 at 7 p.m.
Anthony Mackie’s (The Hurt Locker) break-out performance as a young gay African-American art student in NYC who befriends Harlem Renaissance legend, Richard Bruce Nugent. This film tackles race, sexuality, and the intersection of the two in urban black gay male culture. A truly amazing indy film with a great cast including several roles by actors from the television series, The Wire. Modern day collides with the Harlem Renaissance in a perfect way. A must-see.
