ABOUT THE SCREENING

Based on the Pulitzer Prize winning novel by Colson Whitehead, THE UNDERGROUND RAILROAD chronicles Cora Randall’s (newcomer Thuso Mbedu) desperate bid for freedom in the antebellum South. Academy Award® winner Barry Jenkins (MOONLIGHT) serves as showrunner and directs all ten episodes of the limited series. Join us for a free screening of these two episodes:

 

Chapter 5: Tennessee – Exodus (2021, Amazon Studios, 61 min, Dir: Barry Jenkins)

Captured by Ridgeway, Cora is forced to travel across the barren inferno of Tennessee. She shares the perilous journey with Jasper, a noble runaway filled with inner strength.

 

Chapter 6: Tennessee – Proverbs (2021, Amazon Studios, 59 min, Dir: Barry Jenkins)

For Arnold Ridgeway, a journey home reveals that “the past is not past.” And a chance encounter with a freedman named Royal gives Cora new hope.
