We discuss what we love and what we'd like to see with Black representation in cinema with the 2019 film, See You Yesterday.
Time & Location
Mar 31, 2022, 6:00 PM – 7:30 PM EDT
About the event
See You Yesterday is the second movie in our series called Representation in Cinema. (Trigger Warning: Police Brutality)
In this series, we will discuss the representation of Black people, Indigenous people, and people of color in movies. We want to address the things that we love seeing, the tropes and stereotypes that Hollywood continues to perpetuate on screen, and what representation we'd like to see moving forward.
Two teenage science prodigies (Eden Duncan-Smith and Dante Crichlow) spend every spare minute working on their latest homemade invention: backpacks that enable time travel. When one of their older brothers is killed, they put their unfinished project to the test to save him. See You Yesterday is directed by Stefon Bristol and produced by Spike Lee.
