I’m Not Racist…Am I? Film Screening

Thursday, February 26th 2015 - 7:00 pm - 9:30 pm

Co-sponsored by Tandem Friends School & Charlottesville Friends Meeting

I’m Not Racist…Am I? will be shown at The Paramount Theater in Charlottesville, VA on Thursday, February 26 at 7pm. The Director and Producer of the film will lead a Q&A dialogue with the audience after the viewing.

Link: http://www.notracistmovie.com/ – check out the film trailer here!

Movie Description: I’m Not Racist…Am I? is a 90-minute feature documentary about twelve NYC teenagers who spend a year talking about racism. The teens attend five intense workshops and have conversations over the course of the year that most of us are afraid to have. This year challenges their relationships with their friends, within their own families, and most of all, within themselves.

Cost: Free to the general public with a suggested donation of $5.

What people are saying about the film:

“It looks like a great awareness expander and conversation starter.” ~ Kristin Szakos, Charlottesville City Councilor

“To me it seems like a perfect moment for a movie like this, especially since it helps young adults and teens come to grips with issues they may never have been able to talk about before. My son wanted to see it the minute he heard the title. ” ~ Rosemary Gould

“Having both the Director and Producer at the screening was just great! They were masterful at leading the dialog afterwards, without making people feel defensive or put on the spot. It was a rich, though-provoking experience and I left feeling inspired!” ~ Elizabeth Shillue
