1/16 - WHO WE ARE: A Chronicle of Racism in America - 2021
(2 hours, Rated PG-13)
Written by Jeffrey Robinson
Directed by Sarah & Emily Kunstler
In honor of Martin Luther King’s birthday, BIMA is showing this documentary/travelogue presented by Seattle-based trial attorney Jeffrey Robinson, a persuasive, empathetic, and informed speaker who showcases the history of racism through a living tour of American history. From Oklahoma to the Deep South, from Wall Street to Seattle—while connecting the year 1619 to today—Robinson weaves his personal history with that of America in an engaging and affective way to impress upon us what systemic bigotry actually means. Winner of the top prize, the Golden Space Needle Award, at Seattle Int’l Film Festival.

Hank, a brilliant but shady attorney returns to his Indiana home after learning his mother has passed away. His arrival triggers renewed tension between himself and his father, the town’s judge. As Hank prepares to depart, his father is arrested for a hit-and-run death, so Hank takes on his father’s defense, despite the old man’s objections.

Inspired by a true story, a bright and talented—but marginally employed—salesman is struggling to make ends meet. He finds himself and his 5-year-old child evicted from their apartment with nowhere to go. When he lands himself an internship at a prestigious stock brokerage firm, he and his son endure many hardships in pursuit of their dream for a better life. “For a movie conceived and executed in the mainstream Hollywood idiom, it has uncommon depth and honesty.” - L.A. Weekly
