Best of the Fests: BLACK VOICES MATTER (Two-Film Series)

Through the Night $10 Tickets/ $8 members www.ashlandfilm.org February 12-21 To make ends meet, people in the U.S. are working longer hours across multiple jobs. This modern reality of non-stop work has resulted in an unexpected phenomenon: the flourishing of 24-hour daycare centers. Through the Night is a verité documentary portrait of Deloris Hogan, an heroic, African-American daycare provider, and the ecosystem of parents and children for which she is the beating heart. "Through the Night is both celebration and indictment. A sympathetic depiction of 'women's work,’ in all its unsung dignity, it's also a quietly damning portrait of a merciless economy's effect on working-class mothers”- Sheri Linden, Hollywood Reporter. This film is brought to you by AIFF's monthly “Best of the Fests” series. This month they're offering two magnificent films offering black perspectives on contemporary African-American urban life on their virtual screening platform. 17 Blocks $12 Tickets/$10 members www.ashlandfilm.org February 19-28 In 1999, filmmaker Davy Rothbart met Emmanuel Sanford-Durant and his older brother, Smurf, during a pickup basketball game in Southeast Washington, D.C. Davy began filming their lives, and soon the two brothers and other family members began to use the camera themselves. Spanning 20 years, this story illuminates a national, ongoing crisis through one family's raw, stirring and deeply personal saga. Made from more than 1,000 hours of footage, it all starts on the street where they lived in 1999, 17 blocks behind the U.S. Capitol. This film is brought to you by AIFF's monthly “Best of the Fests” series. This month they're offering two magnificent films offering black perspectives on contemporary African-American urban life on their virtual screening platform.
