Award-Winning Film  "American Fiction"  Premiers at the Little Theatre



The Black Cinema Series, a partnership between the Rochester Association of Black Journalists (RABJ) and the Little Theatre, will present “American Fiction” on Saturday, January 13 at 7:00 p.m.


The film is written and directed by Cord Jefferson (in his feature directorial debut) and stars Jeffrey Wright. A novelist who’s fed up with the establishment profiting from “Black” entertainment uses a pen name to write a book that propels him to the heart of hypocrisy and the madness he claims to disdain.


“American Fiction” has been nominated for a 2024 Best Motion Picture (Musical or Comedy) Golden Globe Award.


Following the film “American Fiction,” there will be a post-screening discussion. Panelists will be announced on RABJ’s Facebook page - https://www.facebook.com/RABJ.417/ - prior

to the event.


Tickets available online in advance or at the box office day of the screening. Doors open at 6:30 p.m.; film begins at 7 p.m. The screening will be shown at the Little Theatre (Little Theatre 1), 240 East Ave., East End District, Rochester, New York.
