 Oscar nominee for Best Documentary   In 1979, James Baldwin wrote a letter to his literary agent describing his next project, Remember This House, a revolutionary, personal account of the lives and successive assassinations of his three close friends—Medgar Evers, Malcolm X and Martin Luther King, Jr.  At the time of Baldwin’s death in 1987, he left behind only thirty completed pages of his manuscript.  Now, in his incendiary new documentary, master filmmaker Raoul Peck envisions the book James Baldwin never finished. The result is a radical, up-to-the-minute examination of race in America, using Baldwin’s original words and flood of rich archival material. The film is a journey into black history that connects the past of the Civil Rights movement to the present of #BlackLivesMatter.  And, ultimately, by confronting the deeper connections between the lives and assassination of these three leaders, Baldwin and Peck have produced a work that challenges the very definition of what America stands for.
