AFRICAN DIASPORA FILM CLUB AILEY with Director Jamila Wign
Join us for our monthly series, The African Diaspora Film Club. Modeled after our African Book Club, we will meet once a month to discuss a film that we have all viewed in advance of the discussion. The conversation will be moderated by Cornelius Moore, co-director of California Newsreel and film series curator at MoAD. We will be choosing a selection of films, some previously screened at MoAD. You may have already seen it, or this may be your first introduction. In either case, join us for a lively discussion of the film.
This month we will be discussing AILEY (2021, Jamila Wignot, 83 mins). You will receive instructions to join via zoom after you sign up here. Look for an email from MoAD after you sign up, if you don’t receive it in your inbox, look in your spam or junk mail.
We will not be screening the film. AILEY will screen on PBS on January 11, 2022 and will be available for streaming for 30 days following the premiere. You can find the film on your local PBS station here.
Director Jamila Wignot will join us for the discussion.
