About the Film:
The Black Cinema Series closes 2018 with director Ava DuVernay's take on Madeleine L'Engle classic novel.
Meg Murry and her little brother, Charles Wallace, have been without their scientist father, Mr. Murry, for five years, ever since he discovered a new planet and used the concept known as a tesseract to travel there. Joined by Meg's classmate Calvin O'Keefe and guided by the three mysterious astral travelers known as Mrs. Whatsit, Mrs. Who and Mrs. Which, the children brave a dangerous journey to a planet that possesses all of the evil in the universe.
The Black Cinema Series is a partnership between the Rochester Association of Black Journalists (RABJ) and The Little. The series celebrates both documentary and narrative expressions in black cinema with a curated film choice every month.
