Intro and Q&A with filmmaker Tanya Hamilton
In the bicentennial year of 1976 Marcus (Anthony Mackie) comes home to his former Philadelphia neighborhood, where he picks up with an old friend (Kerry Washington) who shares the same memories of the Black Panther movement and since co-opted youthful idealism. Hamilton’s debut feature is a wise, remorseful, politically aware drama, and one of the best films of the decade.
