REDCAT
Tickets $20 - SOLD OUT

Overview

ARRAY @ The Broad is an ongoing series featuring classic and contemporary films curated with an eye toward the intersection of art, history, and cultural identity. With the cinematic image as the centerpiece, the series will engage audiences through post-screening conversations with a spectrum of artists and scholars for an immersive exchange of ideas and insights beyond the screen that enliven many issues addressed by artists in the Broad collection. ARRAY, founded in 2010 by filmmaker Ava DuVernay (SELMA), is an arts collective dedicated to the amplification of films by people of color and women filmmakers. 

In a potent collision of race, romance, and jazz, Paris Blues chronicles the passionate relationship of two couples embarking on intellectual and artistic adventures in turbulent times. Starring Sidney Poitier, Paul Newman, Diahann Carroll, and Joanne Woodward and presented in exquisite 35mm, the screening of this 1961 gem will serve as the springboard for a dynamic discussion about identity, creativity, and expatriatism. Engaging the audience in this conversation will be a high-profile quorum of actors, musicians, and scholars selected by filmmaker and ARRAY founder Ava DuVernay, who also served as host for the debut gathering in this ongoing film series.
