USA I 1h 33min I PG-13 I DCP I Dir. Raoul Peck

In 1979, James Baldwin wrote a letter to his literary agent describing his next project, "Remember This House." The book was to be a revolutionary, personal account of the lives and assassinations of three of his close friends: Medgar Evers, Malcolm X and Martin Luther King, Jr. At the time of Baldwin's death in 1987, he left behind only 30 completed pages of this manuscript. Filmmaker Raoul Peck envisions the book James Baldwin never finished.

"A mesmerizing cinematic experience" – Kenneth Turan, Los Angeles Times

The Hyphenated-Americans Film Festival will feature 11 films about Americans with intersecting identities informing their unique experiences of being American. The films will highlight that being American is being a hyphenated-American. This film festival is a response to the current political moment and celebrates the diversity vital to the American experience. This festival has films ranging from documentaries and dramas to a comedy special.

This event is intended for UW-Madison students, faculty, staff and Union members and guests.
