Nominated for the 2017 Academy Award for Best Documentary Feature.
Director: Raoul Peck
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 envisions the book James Baldwin never finished. #jamesbaldwin #oscars #academyawards #racialreconciliation #nickelodeon #columbiasc
