The New Black (2013) Reviews

  • "I'm black, I'm gay, I'm here to stay."


    I was lucky enough to catch this film in the LGBT Festival in Thessaloniki, Greece, and the director was present - she had a long Q&A session with us and accepted to engage longer in conversation when we stepped outside the theater. The documentary investigates how the African American community (mainly of Maryland) feels about homosexual marriage and its being protected by law. It has a logical and intriguing style of narrative, with smooth segues, and despite its lack of a soundtrack, there is a rhythm in it. The time passed by quickly, there were moments of mirth, sadness, anger and delight in it. The documentary doesn't fail to draw you in, but it does make you feel conflicted: on the one hand, you are happy about all that is shown to have been achieved in the last few years, but on the other you realize that the battle to legalize gay marriage is far from over. Informative, all-inclusive, solid documentary that shows a point of view we don't often get to see. The director could have gone even farther and deeper, but it was a pleasant movie experience nonetheless.
