MAGNOLIA PICTURES RELEASED BRAND NEW TRAILER FOR "I AM NOT YOUR NEGRO" (808 hits)

(ATLANTA, GA) 
January 5, 2017: Today, Magnolia Pictures released a brand new trailer for their latest documentary I AM NOT YOUR NEGRO, which was just recently shortlisted for the Oscars: http://variety.com/2016/film/news/oscars-2017-documentaries-oj-made-in-america-weiner-1201935061/, and recently nominated for an NAACP Image Award for "Best Documentary": http://www.naacp.org/latest/naacp-image-award-nominations-announced/. Staying true to the boldness of James Baldwin, this new trailer speaks volumes on truth and justice!

In 1979, James Baldwin wrote a letter to his literary agent describing his next project, Remember This House. The book was to be a revolutionary, personal account of the lives and successive assassinations of three of his close friends-Medgar Evers, Malcolm X and Martin Luther King, Jr.

At the time of Baldwin's death in 1987, he left behind only thirty completed pages of this manuscript.

Now, in his incendiary new documentary, master filmmaker Raoul Peck envisions the book James Baldwin never finished. The result is a radical, up-to-the-minute examination of race in America, using Baldwin's original words and flood of rich archival material. I Am Not Your Negro is a journey into black history that connects the past of the Civil Rights movement to the present of #BlackLivesMatter. It is a film that questions black representation in Hollywood and beyond. And, ultimately, by confronting the deeper connections between the lives and assassination of these three leaders, Baldwin and Peck have produced a work that challenges the very definition of what America stands for.
