The NAGB welcomes you to a special screening of the critically acclaimed Oscar and Golden Globe- willing film "Moonlight," a 2016 American coming-of-age drama film written and directed by Barry Jenkins, based on Tarell Alvin McCraney's unpublished semi-autobiographical play "In Moonlight Black Boys Look Blue." The film will be screened on Thursday, June 20th starting at 8:00 p.m.
Moonlight's" main points of focus include Blackness, masculinity, and vulnerability presented in three stages in the life of the main character; his youth, adolescence, and early adult life. It explores the difficulties he faces with his sexuality and identity, including the physical and emotional abuse he endures growing up.
The NAGB is excited to bring this jewel of a film to Fiona's Theatre, and as a reminder, this and all screenings are FREE and open to the public. We will have popcorn on hand for sale. Come out and celebrate a warm summer evening with us.
