Tomashi Jackson: The Land Claim features newly created work by multimedia artist Tomashi Jackson in painting, sound, photography, and archival materials that centers on the experiences—past and present—of communities of color on Long Island’s East End. The artist’s extensive research included in-depth interviews with members of Black, Latinx, and Indigenous communities in the area, including BHCCRC Executive Director Bonnie Michelle Cannon.

elephant
2020, NR, 15 minutes
Director: Gladys San Juan

elephant is a short film about Nicole, a woman in her late 30s who appears to have it all; a caring husband, two children and a good job. But Nicole is suffering from a crippling depression that, due to the stigma attached to mental illness, she is trying to keep secret. Set over 24 hours, The Elephant shows how a series of otherwise minor events, coupled with Nicole’s dissociation from family and friends, lead her to a state of utter desperation.

The Last Black Man in San Francisco
2019, R, 121 minutes
Director: Joe Talbot

Jimmie Fails dreams of reclaiming the Victorian home his grandfather built in the heart of San Francisco. Joined on his quest by his best friend Mont, Jimmie searches for belonging in a rapidly changing city that seems to have left them behind. As he struggles to reconnect with his family and reconstruct the community he longs for, his hopes blind him to the reality of his situation.

A wistful odyssey populated by skaters, squatters, street preachers, playwrights, and other locals on the margins, The Last Black Man in San Francisco is a poignant and sweeping story of hometowns and how they’re made—and kept alive—by the people who love them.
