Important film on lives of African-American boys is back in the Triangle through this Thursday

In case you missed it during its first two sold-out shows earlier this month, the award-winning film, Raising Bertie returned to the Triangle over the weekend and will showing at the Chelsea Theater in Chapel Hill through Thursday the 13th.

“Raising Bertie is a longitudinal documentary feature following three young African American boys over the course of six years as they grow into adulthood in Bertie County, a rural African American-led community in Eastern North Carolina. Through the intimate portrayal of these boys, this powerful vérité film offers a rare in-depth look at the issues facing America’s rural youth and the complex relationships between generational poverty, educational equity, and race. The evocative result is an experience that encourages us to recognize the value and complexity in lives all too often ignored.”

The film will screen tonight through Thursday at 7:00 p.m. There will be Wednesday matinees at 2:00 and 4:30. You can learn more about the film and  the acclaim it has attracted by clicking here.
