2015 Film Festival: Truth & Reconciliation

Saturday-Sunday September 12-13 at the State Theatre

Racial tensions and structural inequalities between black and white Americans have recently– and repeatedly– been brought to the nation’s urgent attention. However, as Jelani Cobb wrote in the New Yorker in November 2014, these events have been “a punctuation to a long, profane sentence, one which has insulted a great many, and with damning frequency of late.” Over and again, these tragedies and outrages are demonstrations of a systemic, historical dismissal of the dignity of human life.


The Institute for the Arts and Humanities' Fall Film Festival, “Truth and Reconciliation,” aims to examine the historical and persistent realities of race in America. Films include Selma, A Raisin in the Sun, and Fruitvale Station. See below for full list of films and showtimes.
