Raoul Peck, VS 2017
language: English – subtitles: dutch


In 1979, James Baldwin wrote a letter to his literary agent describing his next project, ‘Remember This House’: a radical narration about race in America, through the lives and assassinations of three of his friends: Martin Luther King Jr., Medgar Evers and Malcolm X.

Raoul Peck envisions the book James Baldwin never finished, using only the writers’ original words.


The NYTimes:
Whatever you think about the past and future of what used to be called ‘race relations’ this movie will make you think again, and may even change your mind.

The Atlantic:
However much a documentary about American life in the 1960s, I Am Not Your Negro also uses Baldwin’s insights to illuminate our own contemporary reality.
