Within Our Gates from 1920, he took a firm stand against racial hatred in a plot full of melodramatic entanglements. The film is accompanied live by the Cuban jazz pianist Ramón Valle. Within Our Gates was Micheaux’s fearless answer to DW Griffith’s racist  The Birth of a Nation from 1915, in which the Ku Klux Klan plays a heroic role. Mark Kermode introduces a landmark of African-American cinema; Oscar Micheaux’s film about a teacher in the Deep South struggling to fund a school for black children. Being one of the oldest known surviving films of African American director this piece of social, political and cinematic art is deemed a work of profound historical importance. Within Our Gates will be screening at the Eye Filmmusuem on the 2 April.

Something to keep in mind, Subba members can pick up tickets for this show 1,5 prior to the event.
