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 7: Fanny Briggs (2021, Amazon Studios, 20 min, Dir: Barry Jenkins)

Let the fire burn.

 

Chapter 8: Indiana Autumn (2021, Amazon Studios, 66 min, Dir: Barry Jenkins)

Royal brings Cora to Valentine Farm, a thriving Black community and vineyard on the bountiful Indiana frontier. Carrying the scars of her journey, Cora struggles to find peace in this new home.
