In February, Studio Movie Grill Chatham launched a screen dedicated to Black World Cinema (BWC), an organization whose mission is to present films with compelling content and a human dimension seldom presented in mainstream cinema. This partnership gives the Chatham community the chance to enjoy films produced by and for African Americans — seven days a week, all year long. Select screenings will be followed by lively discussions moderated by program director Floyd Webb or local scholars, screenwriters and directors.
A showcase of seldom seen classic features and new films from around the world.
In honor of Women’s History Month, BWC selected the documentary “Maya Angelou: And Still I Rise” for the screen’s inaugural film, followed by a weeklong run of “Chapter and Verse.” Featured films change often, so be sure to check out what’s currently scheduled.
