Film Screening + Reception // For Paradise

PriceFree
May 19 @ 6:00 pm - 7:30 pm

At the age of 18, Elizabeth Webb discovered a family history that had gone unspoken for a generation: her paternal grandfather, whom she never met, was African-American. Her father had been passing as white. He had also decided to raise his family as such, giving them no knowledge of their Black ancestry. For Paradise is a hybrid documentary that traces the construction of racial identities within her family, where members operate on both sides of the color line. Webb will also share details of her practice and will participate in a live Q&A following the screening of the film.
