Screening & Discussion: “Residue”
September 10, 2020 @ 3:30 pm - 5:00 pm
As part of the 2020 Virtual Diaspora Festival of Black & Independent film, the Stone Center will present “Residue.” Directed by Merawi Gerima, the feature (90 minutes) tells the story of Jay and Demetrius. When Jay arrives home, he finds his neighborhood gentrified beyond recognition. Demetrius, his childhood best friend, is missing, but none of the remaining black folks trust Jay enough to provide any answers. Jay’s frustration compounds as he also finds himself alienated in the city at large, attacked from all sides. Jay visits his last friend Dion in prison, but leaves feeling powerless and infuriated. One final, chance confrontation results in Jay succumbing to the same forces as did his friends.
