Historical Premiere

Cinema & TV

Do you remember, Focus Features’ Loving  by Jeff Nichols was one of our favorite film in Cannes ‘s selection last May, 
For sure the biopic about the real-life Richard and Mildred Loving, whose interracial marriage became the center of the landmark civil rights case Loving v. Virginia in 1967 is definitely a film who will me remembered.

The film will be the first theatrical film to screen at the National Museum of African American History and Culture in Washington, D.C..

This evening’s invitation-only screening of the Jeff Nichols drama at the newly opened museum’s Oprah Winfrey Theater will be preceded by a reception and panel discussion with the writer/director and stars Joel Edgerton and Ruth Negga.

The Museum opened September 24, and included the debut of the Museum-commissioned 22-minute film August 28: A Day In The Life Of A People, directed by Ava DuVernay. The short film will play daily at the Museum.
