Black History Month Film Screening – Sorry to Bother You

February 25, 2019

Black History Month Event Banner

Throughout the month of February, there will be various indie film screenings that showcase the artistic imagery and creative direction of Black film producers. Each film takes you into a world of fiction or truth exploring cultural narratives around sexual identity, social activism, political oppression, and personal freedom.

In an alternate reality of present-day Oakland, California, telemarketer Cassius Green finds himself in a macabre universe after he discovers a magical key that leads to material glory. As Green's career begins to take off, his friends and co-workers organize a protest against corporate oppression. Cassius soon falls under the spell of Steve Lift, a cocaine-snorting CEO who offers him a salary beyond his wildest dreams.

This is a student-focused event.

As the inaugural university-wide celebration, Black History Month 2019 at MacEwan aims to raise awareness of the contributions made by Black Canadians to Canada's culture and legacy, past and present.
