IU Cinema and the Black Film Center/Archive welcome Kevin Willmott for a free screening of his 2013 film, Destination: Planet Negro!
October 15, 2013
1213 E. 7th Street Bloomington, IN 47405
As in his previous films, Kevin Willmott’s most recent film takes inspiration from momentous historic events and adds a hilarious, yet incisive, twist. Destination: Planet Negro begins in the 1930s, joining Black History luminaries W.E.B. DuBois and George Washington Carver to solve the “Negro Problem” – by leaving planet Earth. In this send-up of the sci-fi genre film, problems abound as the characters travel through space and time. In keeping with the indie spirit, Willmott wrote, directed and stars in the film. (2K DCP. 98 min. Not Rated.)
Director Kevin Willmott is scheduled to be present.
