Advance tickets are no longer available for this event.

  • A limited number of tickets will be available at the standby line 15 minutes before the published start time of the event.

Includes a conversation with director Barry Jenkins and actors KiKi Layne and Stephan James

Film Independent Presents – in partnership with KCRW

Please note the 8:00 pm start time for this event.

Oscar-winning writer/director Barry Jenkins follows Moonlight with an adaptation of James Baldwin’s semi-autobiographical 1974 novel about the social and political changes charging through Harlem through the eyes of young Tish (KiKi Layne). We meet her with her close family and see her world expanded as she meets the man, Fonny (Stephan James), who will take her into the future. Jenkins juggles the tension of the period with the piercing, willful optimism that Baldwin fought so hard to maintain.

2018, 117 min, color, DCP | Written by Barry Jenkins; directed by Barry Jenkins; with Kiki Layne, Stephen James, Brian Tyree Henry, Regina King, Colman Domingo, Michael Beach, Diego Luna, Dave Franco
