As the first part of a spotlight onBAMcinemaFest, Brooklyn’s essential annual celebration of American independent film, Le CiNéMa Club is proud to present Kevin Jerome Everson and Claudrena N. Harold’s We Demand, a portrait in miniature of radical African American activist James Roebuck and his participation in the Vietnam War protest movement. By blurring the line between historical recreation and fiction filmmaking at its most artificial, We Demand becomes a woozy, wandering road trip of the mind, a journey toward political action set against a back-projected sky. The short world-premiered in the Berlinale’s Forum section in 2016, and will be making its New York premiere at BAMcinemaFest on June 24th—part of a special program dedicated to Everson’s films that includes several products of his vital ongoing collaboration with Harold (find more details here).
