Emory Cinematheque – Claudine
February 12 @ 7:30 pm - 9:30 pm
Emory Cinematheque, hosted by Emory University’s Department of Film & Media Studies, presents a weekly film series on Wednesday nights from January 22 through April 22. The Spring 2020 program “African-Americans in American Film” showcases and examines African-American narratives, performers and filmmakers in American cinema over the last 100 years. The entire series is free and open to the public.
This evening’s event will be the screening of “Claudine”. Legendary actress Diahann Carroll stars as Claudine, a poor, single mother of six, living in New York City and working as a maid in the suburbs. A welfare recipient, Claudine must hide any signs of material gain including her soon-to-be boyfriend Rupert (James Earl Jones), a trash collector with a problematic past who hesitates to become a father to six children.
FREE, No ticket required.
