EVENT 12/14: Night Catches Us (Film Screening)
Film screening and discussion of the legacy of the Black Panther Party, their families and the importance of having Black women at the helm of our creations.
Few Black Panther Party theatrical releases are written and directed by Black women. Night Catches Us is one of the few exceptions. Written and directed by Tanya Hamilton, Night Catches Us stars Kerry Washington as a widow of a slain Black Panther Party member and Anthony Mackie as a former Black Panther Party member who returns for his father’s funeral. Night Catches Us is also one of the few contemporary theatrical releases that is not catalogued as a documentary.
