Together they will introduce you to films you may have never seen or heard of, many you may have heard of but from people who were simply wrong about them, and maybe even a few that you saw and thought you didn't like.

“Good Luck, Miss Wyckoff” is brutal to watch. Set in the intolerant town of Freedom, Kansas in 1951, the film is about a middle aged virgin (a liberal teacher who stands up for an accused Communist teacher, and fights to integrate her school) who is suffering a mental breakdown due to her lack of sexual experience until she is raped by a black student. Her reaction is a confounding challenge to our expectations.

How is the world wrong about Black Cinema?

From Andras Jones: “Residue” from director Merawi Gerima was released in 2020 so maybe the world hasn’t had a chance to be wrong about it, but it isn’t right about it yet. Let’s change that.

How is the world wrong about Black Cinema?

Bryan (who has not read the book) loves this film, which leads to a conversation about the responsibility (or lack thereof) directors have to their source material.
