RECOGNITION and Cinema Galeries, in partnership with Massimadi Bruxelles - Festival des films LGBT d'Afrique et de ses diasporas, Genres d'à Côté / Pink Screens Film Festival, Warrior Poets The Belgian Pride present an avant premier of one of the best films of 2016, Moonlight, directed by Barry Jenkins.
A timeless story of human connection and self-discovery, MOONLIGHT chronicles the life of a young black man from childhood to adulthood as he struggles to find his place in the world while growing up in a rough neighborhood of Miami.
At once a vital portrait of contemporary African American life and an intensely personal and poetic meditation on identity, family, friendship, and love, MOONLIGHT is a groundbreaking piece of cinema that reverberates with deep compassion and universal truths. Anchored by extraordinary performances from a tremendous ensemble cast, Jenkinss staggering, singular vision is profoundly moving in its portrayal of the moments, people, and unknowable forces that shape our lives and make us who we are.
Film will be subtilted in FR/NL.
The screening will be followed by an after party hosted by Wild Combinations, a collective of queen women Djs. Bring your dancing shoes! Monday is the new Thursday :-)
