FILM GROUP - 2017 Screenings

I AM NOT YOUR NEGRO
(M) France/USA 93 mins
Thursday 16 November, 7.30pm
Friday 17 November, 2pm
With help from Samuel L Jackson, Haitian auteur Raoul Peck delivers a stirring, Oscar-nominated portrait of the writer, civil rights activist and queer icon James Baldwin and his lifelong fight against racial and sexual injustice.
When he died in 1987, Baldwin left behind an unfinished manuscript reminiscing about his friendships with black political leaders Martin Luther King, Malcolm X and Medgar Evers, all of whom were assassinated in the turbulent 1960s.
Thirty years later, Raoul Peck (Fatal Assistance, MIFF 2013) brings this text to life with a ruminative, essayistic documentary containing eye-opening archival footage of Baldwin's incendiary media interventions, as he busted taboos by provocatively broaching questions of race, class and sexuality in the public arena. From Baldwin's childhood in 1930s Harlem to his outspoken political engagement in the 1960s and 1970s, Peck charts the history of race relations in the USA as lived by one of Black America's most prominent public intellectuals, and uses his biography as a springboard to examine today's struggles for equality. Voiced by Samuel L Jackson, I Am Not Your Negro offers "a thrilling introduction to Baldwin's work, a remedial course in American history, and an advanced seminar in racial politics" (New York Times).
Winner of audience awards at the Toronto, Berlin and Chicago film festivals, and the Best Documentary award from the Los Angeles Film Critics Association.

"Life-altering … you would be hard pressed to find a movie that speaks to the present moment with greater clarity and force, insisting on uncomfortable truths and drawing stark lessons from the shadows of history." – AO Scott, New York Times

ALI'S WEDDING
(M) Australia 110 mins
Thursday 7 December, 7.30pm
Friday 8 December, 2pm
Love, lies and Qu'ranic scripture collide on the streets of Melbourne in Osamah Sami's sweet, funny and (unfortunately) true tale of the lengths one man will go to find love – and avoid disappointing his very religious dad.

Ali is just trying to do the right thing. The son of a Muslim cleric who emigrated from Iraq, he's taken to the Melbourne lifestyle in a way that his father simply hasn't. But he's getting to a marriageable age and when a sequence of well-intentioned lies starts hurtling out of control, he finds himself being thrust into an arranged match that he has absolutely no intention of going through with – all while simultaneously falling in love with another woman, Dianne.

Based on the real-life experience of lead actor Osamah Sami's ill-fated marriage, Ali's Wedding is the affectionate and heartfelt feature film debut from TV-directing phenom Jeffrey Walker (Jack Irish: Bad Debts, Miff 2012). Winner of Best Original Screenplay at the Australian Writers' Guild Awards, Ali's Wedding is a fast-paced comedy of manners that shines with wit, humanity and crowd-pleasing charisma.

Ali's Wedding neatly strips away the solemnity enveloping that lead balloon of a word "multiculturalism." There's a joyously comic lack of inhibition here and, even better, we're told it's largely a true story.August 30, 2017 Sandra Hall Sydney Morning Herald

"It explores the blend of Middle Eastern and Australian culture within this country but also tells an amusing, family-driven tale that most will appreciate and celebrate, regardless of their background."
October 23, 2017 Matthew Toomey ABC Radio Brisbane
