I Am Not Your Negro (12A)

USA/2016/93mins/12A. Dir: Raoul Peck With: Samuel L. Jackson, James Baldwin, Harry Belafonte

In this fascinating picture of the Civil Rights movement and the ongoing deeper narrative of America’s troubled relationship with race, James Baldwin’s zeitgeist-defining treatise on race in America is juxtaposed with music, archive footage and images of present-day America to create a powerful mosaic that lays bare the persistent violence and systemic inequality suffered by America’s black population.

"Baldwin was writing more than 30 years ago. Not so much has changed since then. Even so, I Am Not Your Negro isn't as pessimistic as its downbeat tone suggests it should be. Baldwin's commentary is intended to provoke, not to induce despair."
Independent (UK)
"A forcefully eloquent movie "
