Moonlight

Campus Event, Garden City Event, Film Screening


2016, 111 minutes, color, story by Tarell Alvin McCraney, written and directed by Barry Jenkins

A timeless story of human connection and self-discovery, Moonlight chronicles the life of a young black man from childhood to adulthood as he struggles to find his place in the world while growing up in a rough neighborhood of Miami.  At once a vital portrait of contemporary African American life and an intensely personal and poetic meditation on identity, family, friendship and love, Moonlight is a groundbreaking piece of cinema that reverberates with deep compassion and universal truths.  Anchored by extraordinary performances from a tremendous ensemble cast, Jenkins’ staggering, singular vision is profoundly moving in its portrayal of the moments, people and unknowable forces that shapes our lives and make us who we are.

Sam Grogg, interim provost and executive vice president at Adelphi, will lead a discussion following the film.

This spring, the Adelphi University Department of History will host a series of film screenings exploring the history of immigration, migration and race. At the conclusion of each screening, a member of the Adelphi faculty will lead a discussion about the film with the audience.  All screenings will take place in the Concert Hall and are free and open to the public.
