    Thursday, November 9, 2017

    Iris and B. Gerald Cantor Auditorium, 3rd Floor

    Enjoy an evening of Brooklyn film with two new releases highlighting the experiences of queer and trans* people of color. First, catch Walk for Me (Elegance Bratton, 2017, 12 min.), a contemporary coming-out story exploring chosen family. Then, we’re screening season one of the web series 195 Lewis (Chanelle Aponte Pearson, 2017, 5 episodes, 47 min.), a boundary-pushing dramedy that follows a group of women navigating black and queer life in Bed-Stuy. Followed by a Q&A with Chanelle Aponte Pearson, cast members Rae Leone Allen and D. Ajane Carlton, and music supervisor Ryann Holmes.
