Last year marked the 20th anniversary of Kasi Lemmons’ directorial debut, Eve’s Bayou, a haunting drama about race, memory, perception, and truth. Its opening lines chill the soul as Eve Batiste (Jurnee Smollet) takes the viewer on a journey through her childhood memories, unraveling the events leading to her father’s death. Contains mature content, including strong language. Programmed by IU Cinema Events and Operations Graduate Assistant Phillisha Wathen. (35mm Presentation)
