Sorry, the time to watch this movie is over.

A film is worth a thousand words

In the past few weeks, we have on several occasions connected with each other to educate ourselves and increase awareness of prejudice and systemic racism in our language, customs, unwritten rules, and behaviors. We know that racism impacts daily life in the Netherlands as well as many other places. If Beale Street Could Talk is a compelling story about the immense personal impact that results from injustice, discrimination and systemic racism.

The movie night is presented by Bain Amsterdam in partnership with Cinetree, an organization that every month provides a curated selection of stunning & impactful movies. In addition to this subscription-based selection, it is also possible to rent individual movies. In light of the current topic and the increasing awareness for the Black Lives Matter movement, they are offering some beautiful movies for rent under the category Black Films Matter.
