Pariah
Tuesday, Oct. 23 at 7 p.m.

Based on the life of a 17 year-old high school senior living in the Bronx, Alike struggles with her identity at home, in school, and in the lesbian nightclub scene across town. She doesn’t quite fit in anywhere and wrestles with the polarizing issue of gender in the African-American and lesbian communities. Throughout the film, we hear a young woman’s voice grow stronger punctuated by readings of her poetry. Winner of Independent Spirit Awards and Sundance, Pariah is a powerful film from first-time director Dee Rees which speaks to all of us searching for our place in the world.
