I Am Not Your Negro
Directed by Raoul Peck, 93 min., USA
Nominated for a 2017 Academy Award, the seed for this film was planted more than 35 years ago. In 1979, James Baldwin wrote a letter to his literary agent describing his next project, «Remember This House.» The book was to be a revolutionary, personal account of the lives and assassinations of three of his close friends: Medgar Evers, Malcolm X and Martin Luther King, Jr. At the time of Baldwin's death in 1987, he left behind only 30 completed pages of this manuscript. Through I Am Not Your Negro, filmmaker Raoul Peck envisions the book James Baldwin never finished.
