ARRAY @ The Broad: Nothing But a Man, 1964

ARRAY @ The Broad: Nothing But a Man, 1964

REDCAT and The Broad present ARRAY @ The Broad

Set against the stirrings of the civil rights movement and a rising wave of burgeoning black pride, Nothing but a Man, tells the story of a railroad section hand, who is forced to confront racial prejudice and self-denial when he falls in love with an educated preacher’s daughter. Presented in a recently restored 35mm print by the Library of Congress and Cinema Conservancy, the screening of this 1964 work of art will serve as the springboard for open exchange about economic and social equality as well as the pursuit of selfhood in spite of both. A post-screening discussion will follow. Discussion participants will be announced closer to the event.

ARRAY @ The Broad is an ongoing series featuring classic and contemporary films curated with an eye toward the intersection of art, history and cultural identity. With the cinematic image as the centerpiece, the series engages audiences through post-screening conversations with a spectrum of artists and scholars for an immersive exchange of ideas and insights beyond the screen that enliven many issues addressed by artists in the Broad collection. ARRAY, founded in 2010 by filmmaker Ava DuVernay (SELMA), is an arts collective dedicated to the amplification of films by people of color and women filmmakers.

Guest Curator: Ava DuVernay

Ava DuVernay is the award-winning filmmaker of SELMA, who made history when she became the first black woman director to have a film nominated for the Academy Award for Best Picture. She is also the founder of ARRAY, a community-based distribution collective dedicated to the amplification of films by people of color and women filmmakers.
