As vital a film as you’ll find in recent years, I Am Not Your Negro takes the 30 completed pages of James Baldwin’s final, unfinished manuscript and uses them to create a bracing and powerful film essay. The great Haitian director Raoul Peck (Lumumba) builds the film around those words, read beautifully by Samuel L. Jackson, that were originally meant for a book about the lives and assassinations of Baldwin’s friends Medgar Evers, Malcolm X, and Martin Luther King Jr. Revealing Baldwin’s astute and prescient connections between past and present injustices, the film shows that the author’s insights are more necessary than ever. The moving film recently received a Oscar nomination for Best Documentary. (93 mins., DCP)
