Join us for a screening of Bronx Gothic, Andrew Rossi’s electrifying portrait of writer and performer Okwui Okpokwasili and her acclaimed solo show of the same title. The film gives insight into Okpokwasili’s creative process and the complex social issues it embodies. Rooted in her childhood memories, she creates a mesmerizing space in which audiences engage with a story about two 12-year-old black girls coming of age in the 1980s.

After the screening, join a group of local Chicago artists in a conversation about race and the process of making live performance.
