Bronx Gothic

Loading
Bronx Gothic is a portrait of writer and performer Okwui Okpokwasili as she stages a final tour for her one-woman show. Although the play within the play of Bronx Gothic is set in the 1980s, Okwui's piece is timely. She explains in the film that her depiction of a "vibrating brown body" is political insofar as all "black and brown bodies" have been inscribed with a history of violence in our culture. She says in the film that Americans have become "acculturated to seeing brown bodies in pain" and she hopes that "Bronx Gothic" will allow audience members to grow their empathic capacity while seeing her in a radical dance that presents the brown body from a new perspective. We follow Okwui as she tours "Bronx Gothic" around the country and conducts talkbacks with her audience. During t [...]

I, Tonya

Loading
Based on the unbelievable but true events, I, Tonya is a dark comedic tale of American figure skater, Tonya Harding, and one of the most sensational scandals in sports history. Though Harding was the first American woman to complete a triple axel in competition, her legacy was forever defined by her association with an infamous and poorly executed attack on fellow Olympic competitor Nancy Kerrigan. I, Tonya is an absurd, irreverent, and piercing portrayal of Harding's life and career in all of its unchecked--and checkered--glory.
