As Tambay said below, today is your last chance to
see Yoruba Richen’s prize-winning documentary The New Black in New York at The
Film Forum, but that doesn’t mean your chances are totally gone.
If you live in the Chicago area, you’re in luck, because
the film will open this Friday, Feb. 21 at Facets Cinémathèque (sort of Chicago’s own version of The Film
Forum), for an exclusive one-week engagement.
The film will screen twice a week on weekdays at 7 & 9 PM, and on Sat., Feb. 22 at 3, 5, 7 & 9PM and on
Sun., Feb. 23 at 3, 5 & 7 PM.
Facet’s Cinémathèque is located on Chicago’s North Side
at 1517 W. Fullerton.
