ABOUT THE SHOW
AMERICAN FICTION is Cord Jefferson's hilarious directorial debut, which confronts our culture’s obsession with reducing people to outrageous stereotypes. Jeffrey Wright stars as Monk, a frustrated novelist who’s fed up with the establishment profiting from “Black” entertainment that relies on tired and offensive tropes. To prove his point, Monk uses a pen name to write an outlandish “Black” book of his own, a book that propels him to the heart of hypocrisy and the madness he claims to disdain.
The film will be followed by a conversation with actors Jeffrey Wright, Sterling K. Brown, Issa Rae, Erika Alexander, and Leslie Uggams.
Viewing instructions will be sent to the provided email just prior to the scheduled start time. The film will be available until midnight, Monday, December 4.
