On the latest edition of Cinema in Noir, my co-host Candice gave her review on some of the films that debuted at this year’s Tribeca Film Festival. The one that I am most excited about is The Death and Life of Marsha P. Johnson.
I first heard about the LGBT activist a few years ago and can not wait to see her story on the big screen. You can check out Candice’s review here.
We also chatted about two shows that people are talking about. The first is Shots Fired.
The show is created and executive produced by power couple Reggie Rock Bythewood and Gina Prince-Bythewood. It stars Sanaa Lathan and centers around a small town that is the scene of racial discord after a black police officer shoots an unarmed white teen.
We also chatted about Dear White People, the new Netflix series that is based on the 2014 film of the same name.
The show hilariously tackles the black experience on an Ivy League campus.
