I Am Not Your Negro (US - DVD R1 | BD RA)
Release news for the scathing documentary about James Baldwin...
Released: 2nd May 2017
Magnolia Home Entertainment has announced the Blu-ray and DVD releases of Raoul Peck's
I Am Not Your Negro. As is the case with most Magnolia press releases, there is no mention of special features or specs.
Quote: 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 successive 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 thirty completed pages of his manuscript. Now, in his incendiary new documentary, master filmmaker Raoul Peck ( Sometimes In April) envisions the book Baldwin never finished.
The result is a radical, up-to-the-minute examination of race in America, using Baldwin’s original words and flood of rich archival material. I Am Not Your Negro is a journey into black history that connects the past of the Civil Rights movement to the present of #BlackLivesMatter. It is a film that questions black representation in Hollywood and beyond. And, ultimately, by confronting the deeper connections between the lives and assassination of these three leaders, Baldwin and Peck have produced a work that challenges the very definition of what America stands for.
