W.E.B. Du Bois to George Floyd: 150 Years of Resistance

October 3-4, 2020

The Triplex Cinema and Berkshire International Film Festival have teamed up with the nonprofit Clinton Church Restoration to offer a weekend of documentary films on October 3-4. The event will feature free live screenings of four documentaries that address African American resistance to racial injustice over a span of 150 years: W.E.B. Du Bois: A Biography in Four Voices, I Am Not Your Negro, John Lewis: Good Trouble, and Whose Streets? An outdoor program of speakers will kick off the event on October 3 at 12 noon. The speakers will be Dr. Whitney Battle-Baptiste, Sabrina Allard, and Brooke Bridges.

The films will be shown on October 3rd and 4th, with two showings for each film. Dates and times are available on the theater’s website and reservations are required. In accordance with state guidelines, all screenings will take place in reduced capacity theaters that allow for physical distancing. There will be a streaming option for three of the four films for those unable to attend in person. This option will be available for two weeks starting October 3. The nominal fee for streaming tickets will go to the Clinton Church Restoration project.
