Synopsis

This program showcases talented filmmakers and paints an image of black life in the United States and abroad.

See You Next Time (U.S.) captures the intimate moments between a Chinese nail tech and her black client in a Brooklyn nail salon. Two friends struggle to maintain their bond as they cope with a tragic event and the threat of gentrification in Liberty (U.S.). In Easter Snap (U.S.), a homestead hog-processing ritual is keenly observed. Two unapologetically black and fearlessly funny friends go for a walk in Minneapolis’ North Loop (U.S.). Mthunzi (South Africa) reveals cultural tensions when a passer-by attempts to help a woman in the grips of a seizure. A mixture of traditional narrative and spoken word tells the tender story of a mother and son in Blackwood (Australia). All On a Mardis Gras Day (U.S.) reveals a secret 200-year old tradition in which African-American men don feathered and beaded suits in a battle to decide who’s prettiest.
