The Parrish Art Museum is partnering with Bridgehampton Child Care & Recreational Center to present a 2-day outdoor Black Film Festival on August 14 and 21 featuring feature films, documentaries, and shorts inspired by the current epic global movement to elevate black lives and eliminate racism.

The films, selected by a committee made up of both organizations, speak to systemic inequality but also personal stories of hope, and connect historical civil rights movements to today’s events that sparked protests throughout the country and globally.

“I am grateful for our ongoing partnership with BHCCRC to present this mini festival that is meant to educate, entertain, and inspire so that we all can become part of the conversation about racial inequality and social justice,” said Corinne Erni, Senior Curator of Arts Reach and Special Projects. “Films are a perfect conduit to connect us emotionally and intellectually to these issues and encourage action.”

“This Black Film Festival is a perfect extension of The Center’s THINKING FORWARD LECTURE SERIES. The Festival is an opportunity to shed light on different cultures and their life experiences. The only way that we are going to come together is to learn more about each other and to spend time with each other. I am excited about the expanded partnership between The Bridgehampton Child Care & Recreational Center and The Parrish. I look forward to us working together in the future. Please come out and support this event; I promise you it will be enlightening, thought-provoking, life changing, and just a great time for all.” Bonnie Michelle Cannon, Executive Director, Bridgehampton Child Care & Recreational Center.

Entrance opens at 7:30 pm. Films will begin after dark, at approximately 8:30 pm.

other
2018, NR, 6 minutes, 20 seconds
Director: Xavier Burgin

other is a short film about a black woman who struggles with her feelings as she navigates white spaces in the aftermath of the white nationalist rallies in Charlottesville, Virginia. As a black woman, mother, and wife, she must face unconcerned neighbors, unaware colleagues, and clueless strangers who make containing her hurt, rage, and sorrow almost unbearable. A chance meeting with a barista offers her only respite.

The Hate U Give
2018, PG-13, 132 minutes
Director: George Tillman Jr.

Starr Carter is constantly switching between two worlds: the poor, mostly black, neighborhood where she lives and the rich, mostly white, prep school she attends. The uneasy balance between these worlds is shattered when Starr witnesses the fatal shooting of her childhood best friend Khalil at the hands of a police officer. Now, facing pressures from all sides of the community, Starr must find her voice and stand up for what’s right.
