Screening: LATE NIGHT with Executive VP at FilmNation Mike Jackman
Monday, October 21st, 7pm: Savoy Theater

Katherine Newbury (Emma Thompson) is a pioneer and legendary host on the late-night talk-show circuit. When she’s accused of being a “woman who hates women,” she puts affirmative action on the to-do list hiring Molly (Mindy Kaling) as the one woman in Katherine’s all-male writers’ room. But Molly might be too little too late, as the formidable Katherine also faces the reality of low rating and a network that wants to replace her. Molly, wanting to prove she’s not simply a diversity hire is determined to help Katherine by revitalizing her show and career—and possibly effect even bigger change at the same time.

An inspired and intimate portrait of a place and its people, HALE COUNTY THIS MORNING, THIS EVENING looks at the lives two young African American men from rural Hale County, Alabama, over the course of five years. The audience is invited to experience the mundane and monumental, birth and death, the quotidian and the sublime. These moments combine to communicate the region’s deep culture and provide glimpses of the complex ways the African American community’s collective image is integrated into America’s visual imagination.
