A Wrinkle In Time: Community Screening for Youth of Color
Meg Murry and her brother Charles Wallace have normal lives until one night when a strange visitor comes. Her name was Mrs. Whatsit. She states that there IS such thing as a "tesseract". The next day, Meg and Charles Wallace meet Mrs. Who and Mrs. Which. They also meet the most popular boy in high school: Calvin O'Keefe. Together, they embark on an adventure to save Meg's father, Dr. Murry.
This film, based on the landmark children's book is directed by Ava DuVernay, and represents the first $100 million dollar film ever directed by a woman of color.
Hollywood made its very first $100 million film in 1994 with True Lies, directed by James Cameron. In the 22 years since, the industry has seen an explosion of films (335 to be exact) that have cost nine-digit sums to make, but not a single woman of color has been at the helm of one until now.
This private community screening, presented by Sankofa Film Society is free, and will seat by reservation only. We want to make sure that youth of color, who hold the least power in our society are prioritized for this screening. Tickets will be distributed by the following priority:
1. Youth of color ages 0-12
2. Youth of color ages 13-18
3. Young adults of color ages 19-24
4. Adult caregivers for youth
