About This Event

2020 > Directed by Ephraim Asili \ With Aurielle Akerele, Chris Jarell, Michael A. Lake \ After nearly a decade exploring different facets of the African diaspora — and his own place within it — Ephraim Asili makes his feature-length debut with The Inheritance, an astonishing ensemble work set almost entirely within a West Philadelphia house where a community of young, Black artists and activists form a collective. "Ephraim Asili's boldly political, quietly experimental film asks what it means—and costs—for Black people to form intentional communities." (Vanity Fair) Cornell professor Samantha Sheppard (PMA) will moderate the post-screening discussion with Asili. Cosponsored with ASRC. More at grasshopperfilm.com/film/the-inheritance/ \ 1 hr 50 min \
