Smile It’s Your Close Up: I Remember Harlem,
Sunday, April 23rd, 2017, from 1:00pm 5:00pm at Maysles Cinema, 343 Lenox Avenue by 127th Street. William Miles, 1981, 240 min
Though arguably no other New York City neighborhood has generated as many conflicting representations as Harlem, one singular documentary stands out: I Remember Harlem, directed and produced by legendary filmmaker William Miles. Miles’ epic lovingly renders the diverse, 350-year history of Harlem as both a living, breathing neighborhood and as the cultural hub of African-American life.
The film will be screened in two parts, from 1:00pm to 3:00pm and from 4:00pm to 6:00pm, with a 60-minute intermission from 3:00pm to 4:00pm. More details and ticket information can be found on the Maysles Cinema site: LINK
