During Black History Month, Robinson Film Center will celebrate black cinema by featuring the work of four contemporary directors. The Black History Month Film Series is presented by the Caddo Parish Commission and Centenary Film Society and coordinated in partnership with Shreveport Urban Film Festival, with a screening each week in February with a post-screening discussion led by members of the community.
“This series provides a great opportunity to come together to discuss not only the cultural impact of these filmmakers, but also the importance of these stories in building a community where every voice feels heard,” said Steven Jackson, Caddo Parish Commissioner for District 3.
The works of Ryan Coogler, Ava DuVernay, Barry Jenkins and Spike Lee will be featured during the series. The schedule includes:
6:30 p.m. Feb. 5: Barry Jenkins’ If Beale Street Could Talk
6:30 p.m. Feb. 12: Spike Lee’s Do the Right Thing
6:30 p.m. Feb. 21: Ryan Coogler’s Creed
