Join fellow alumni, parents, students, and friends of the University of Rochester for a private screening of the 2017 Academy Award-winning film, Moonlight.
Described as “a rarely seen portrayal of what it really means to be a black, gay man in America today,” Moonlight tells the coming-of-age story of a young African-American man grappling with his identity and sexuality while experiencing the struggles of childhood, adolescence, and adulthood.
Prior to the screening, meet other attendees in The Little Theatre Café for a casual reception with drinks and hors d’oeuvres, featuring a welcome from Miles Perry ’20, program assistant for the Paul J. Burgett Intercultural Center and former president of Pride Network, and brief remarks by artist, filmmaker, photographer, founder and chair of Rochester Black Pride, Adrian Elim ’13.
Admission is $10 per person and includes the reception, screening, popcorn, and a beverage to enjoy during the film. We are pleased to offer $5 admission to current undergraduate students.
Advance registration is required, as space is limited.
The film will be available in English subtitles.
