2/8/19 – I AM NOT YOUR NEGRO - Filmmaker Raoul Peck mined James Baldwin's published and unpublished oeuvre, selecting passages from his books, essays, letters, notes, and interviews that are every bit as incisive and pertinent now as they have ever been. Weaving these text together, Peck imagines the book that Baldwin never wrote. Peck's film uses them to jump

through time, juxtaposing Baldwin's private words with his public statements in an examination of the tragic history of race in America.  This documentary is rated PG-13.

2/15/19 – LINCOLN - A revealing drama that focuses on the 16th president's tumultuous final months in office.
