Two years after winning an Oscar for Moonlight, director/screenwriter Barry Jenkins returns with a critically-acclaimed adaptation of James Baldwin’s novel about early 1970s Harlem. Fonny and Tish are lovers who have known each other from childhood. Tish becomes pregnant, while Fonny experiences the tragic fate of many in the African American community at the time: he is convicted of a crime he did not commit. This film is an intimate, poetic, humanist work through which Jenkins continues to establish his status as a first-rate filmmaker who possesses an extraordinary ability to combine impressive visual language with an emotionally powerful narrative and complex characters. The film was not distributed in Israel, and this is a unique opportunity to view it on the big screen.
