Screening: Night Catches Us

1/25/2011 10:54:00 PM
The Color of Film Collaborative, Inc., in association with The Roxbury International Film Festival, Future Boston Alliance and Night Life Executives presents a one-time only New England screening of NIGHT CATCHES US. Directed and written by Tanya Hamilton, the urban family drama stars Anthony Mackie (“The Hurt Locker”), Kerry Washington (“for colored girls”), Jamie Hector, Wendell Pierce and Amari Cheatom and features a score by The Roots. This screening begins a series of events leading up to the 13th Annual Roxbury International Film Festival in July 2011.

In 1976, after years of mysterious absence, Marcus (Anthony Mackie) returns to the Philadelphia neighborhood where he came of age in the midst of the Black Power movement. While his arrival raises suspicion among his family and former neighbors, he finds acceptance from his old friend Patricia (Kerry Washington) and her daughter. However, Marcus quickly finds himself at odds with the organization he once embraced, whose members suspect he orchestrated the slaying of their former comrade-in-arms. In a startling sequence of events, Marcus must protect a secret that could shatter everyone's beliefs as he rediscovers his forbidden passion for Patricia.
