Movie Monday: Moonlight

Published kaithleen - Mon, 01/21/2019 - 6:30pm

Every Monday the Civic Media Center screens documentaries and films that inspire and spark ideas! We follow all films with a discussion to provoke introspection and reflection on the material presented in the film screening.

Join us on Monday, January 21st at 7 PM for the movie “Moonlight” (2016).

Moonlight is a 2016 American coming-of-age drama film written and directed by Barry Jenkins. The film presents three stages in the life of the main character; his youth, adolescence, and early adult life. It explores the difficulties he faces with his sexuality and identity, including the physical and emotional abuse he endures growing up. Moonlight became the first film with an all-black cast, the first LGBTQ film to win the Oscar for Best Picture

Dr. Zoharah Simmons and CMC Board member Renaud will be facilitating the discussion after the movie.

Dr. Simmons is a UF Professor of Religion and African American Studies.

The movie is free and donations are appreciated.
