Film Premiere of Sighted Eyes/Feeling Heart: Lorraine Hansberry
Saturday, Jan 13, 3 pm (120 minutes)
Filmmaker Tracy Heather Strain explores the life of world renown playwright and Black activist Lorraine Hansberry, best known for her work in her landmark 1959 Broadway play A Raisin in the Sun. Strain examines Hansberry’s life and work using a remarkable collection of archival footage, home movies, rare photos and unpublished documents. She creates a portrait of an activist and artist whose words and ideas are as relevant today as they were when she first wrote them. A post-discussion with the filmmaker will follow.
