I Am Not Your Negro has been playing the festival circuit the past few months leaving each film festival with riveting glowing critically acclaimed reviews. This Friday Raoul Peck‘s Oscar-nominated documentary is set for a UK & Irish cinema release and Altitude Film Entertainment has sent us a couple of clips to support the release. Check them out…
First clip ‘Future Of America‘ James Baldwin speaks from the heart, the future of America is up to America and he’s not a Negro but a human being.
In the second clip called ‘Real Danger‘ James Baldwin is involved in a heated interview and if you turn your back n society you will die.

The powerful feature is based on JAMES BALDWIN’s notes for an unfinished novel ‘Remember This House’ widely considered as one of the greatest uncompleted works in American literature.
Narrated by SAMUEL L. JACKSON and with unprecedented access to JAMES BALDWIN’S original work, RAOUL PECK has completed the cinematic version of the book BALDWIN never wrote – a radical narration about race in America that tracks the lives and assassinations of BALDWIN’s friends, Martin Luther King Jr., Malcolm X and Medgar Evers. Whilst it is partly anchored in the struggle for equality in the 50s and 60s, I AM NOT YOUR NEGRO is about what it means to be black in America today.
By confronting the deeper connections between the lives and assassinations of these three men, we uncover a larger narrative of America’s historical and current denial and irrational relationship with race. This ‘history of violence’ is also told through the long simplified narrative that Hollywood recounts as a story between ‘good’ and ‘evil’ or ‘right and wrong’, reflects our current racial precariousness. I AM NOT YOUR NEGROis also the autopsy of the American racial imagery and iconography.
I Am Not Your Negro is set for a UK&Irish Cinemas from Friday 7th April. It is a Limited Release please check the list below for Confirmed cinemas screening the movie:
