Hayti Film Next Level – February 2022 Films
From the political to the personal, the Hayti Film Next Level series presents two films that push the boundaries of human expression.
1969. Marighella, Brazil’s number one enemy, has no time for fear. On the one hand, a violent military dictatorship, with its heinous crimes of torture and infamous censorship. On the other, an intimidated people. Alongside guerrilleros 30 years younger than him and willing to fight, the revolutionary leader opts for action – all the while trying to keep the promise of reuniting with his son, who he distanced himself from in order to protect.
Directed by Wagner Moura.
**In Portuguese with English subtitles.
THEE DEBAUCHERY BALL
Thee Debauchery Ball is the story of Chicago’s Afro-Futuristic, BDSM, fetish-themed House music party and how it has reshaped the Black social scene and challenged the narratives of Black sexuality.
Directed by David Weathersby
This month’s screenings are available online only.
