Ashes and Embers

When: Thu., April 28, 7 p.m. 2016

Winner of the FIPRESCI Prize at the 1983 Berlin International Film Festival, Haile Gerima's Ashes and Embers presents the story of Vietnam veteran Nay Charles, struggling years after the war to find strength and confidence as he comes to terms with his military past and his place as a Black man in contemporary America. Shadow & Act's Brandon Wilson calls Gerima's film "a challenging, non-linear endeavor; half experimental, half narrative, and above all a call to arms" reminiscent of Resnais and Godard.
