Film Screening & Cocktails: America Needs a Racial Facial by Jeff Adachi

  • Variety Club Preview Room 582 Market Street San Francisco, CA, 94104 United States (map)

We are happy to invite you to the film screening and cocktail reception of Jeff Adachi's new short film, America Needs a Racial Facial.

American Needs a Racial Facial is a short, 8 minute film about race in America. It provides a blur of fascinating images and video – historical and contemporary – depicting both the division and blending that has characterized the history and treatment of people of color in this country. Beginning with this country’s history of slavery and discrimination against African Americans, eradication and colonization of Native Americans, exclusion of Asian Americans and exploitation of Mexican and Latin Americans, Racial Facial depicts a visual panorama which encompasses the history of oppression and discrimination that has led to continuation of tension, unrest and anger among all Americans.

Attendance is free with RSVP via Eventbrite or email to aactlabayarea@gmail.com (Space Limited to first 65 Guests who RSVP).
