NY'S DIRTY LAUNDRY - W/ Q&A
AN EVENING WITH PATRICE JOHNSON
SAT, NOV 30 @ 4PM - Chapel
In the weeks after 9/11, racial paradigms are shifted and hidden prejudices are revealed in this heated and often hilarious exchange between the members of two immigrant families
(one Afro-Caribbean and the other Arab-Muslim) who clash in a crowded Brooklyn Laundromat and in an airless NYC taxicab. With mistrust already heightened, quarters are exchanged for political conversation as these "new" New Yorkers debate what it now means to be an American.
Directed by Patrice Johnson, 2007, 117 min., USA, Comedy/Drama, English. Q&A after screening.
