Billings film series explores civil-rights past with “I Am Not Your Negro”

Saturday, Jan. 13, 3 p.m. & 5 p.m.—WOODSTOCK—The eighth annual Woodstock Vermont Film Series at the Billings Farm & Museum will feature the award-winning documentary “I Am Not Your Negro” on Saturday, Jan. 13, at 3 p.m. and 5 p.m. in HD projection and surround sound, with complimentary refreshments. All films are open to the public and accessible to people with disabilities. Reservations are strongly recommended.

“I Am Not Your Negro” is rated PG-13. This Oscar-nominated portrait of writer James Baldwin uses the author’s words to bridge the civil-rights past with our racially incendiary present. “It’s unmissable and unforgettable,” said Peter Travers of Rolling Stone. The film was nominated for a Best Documentary Feature Academy Award; with an additional 21 wins and 40 nominations.

Tickets prices are $9-$11. Billings Farm & Museum is located one-half mile north of the Woodstock village green on Vermont Route 12. For more information, visit billingsfarm.org/filmfest or call 802-457-2355.
