Award-Winning Short Documentary "Becoming Black Lawyers" to Screen at the Upcoming North Carolina Black Film Festival
According to the filmmaker Evangeline M. Mitchell, "I am so excited that "Becoming Black Lawyers" is screening at this year's North Carolina Black Film Festival - one of the best Black film festivals in the country. It is truly an honor for my film to have been selected and included in this wonderful event dedicated to showcasing the work of independent Black filmmakers."
"Becoming Black Lawyers" is a unique contribution to Black cinema in that it is currently the only documentary that shares the reflections of Black lawyers regarding the very real struggles of their lived experiences while attending predominantly White law schools in pursuit of earning their law degrees. It will screen on Saturday, March 26th, 2022 at 2:00 p.m. on the Main Stage at the Community Arts Center. The running time for the short is 25 minutes. The film will be immediately followed by a Black lawyers panel.
The North Carolina Black Film Festival will feature screenings of a broad array of over 40 carefully selected films centering Black lives and experiences from various genres. The films will be hosted in different locations throughout the city of Wilmington including the University of North Carolina Wilmington's Upper African American Cultural Center, Jengo's Playhouse, the Community Arts Center, and the Cameron Art Museum. You can find the festival schedule online at www.blackartsalliance.org. Tickets are available for purchase via Eventbrite.
