Join us for a Brazilian party curated by Roger Costa, with free drinks, light bites, a drumming performance by Marivaldo Dos Santos and music by DJ Luciano to celebrate the opening of the Newark Black Film Festival, the oldest Black film festival in the country. The reception will be followed at 8pm by a screening of Executive Order and a panel discussion.

Executive Order, directed by Lázaro Ramos. (103 min). Not rated

In a near dystopian future in Brazil, an authoritarian government orders all citizens of African descent to move to Africa—creating chaos, protests, and an underground resistance movement that inspires the nation.

The screening will be followed by a Q&A.

Please note: Auditorium seating is available on a first come first serve basis, an overflow space will be provided once we are at capacity.
