SCREENING

Test Pattern

Saturday, Feb 19, 2022 at 4:30 pm

Location: Bartos Screening Room

Dir. Shatara Michelle Ford. United States. 2020, 82 mins. With Brittany S. Hall, Will Brill, Gail Bean. Debut writer-director Ford has crafted a gripping narrative centered on the perspective of Renesha (the remarkable Brittany S. Hall), a successful Black woman who works at a nonprofit and lives with her white artist boyfriend in Texas. Using a hazy, muted color palette to capture Renesha’s emotions and experiences, Ford dives deep into the dynamics of sex and power in contemporary society, revealing how effortlessly a man can violate a woman’s body. Test Pattern is a meticulously visualized and powerfully conceived exploration of the effects of systemic, patriarchal injustice. Winner of Lionsgate/STARZ Producer Award at the 2019 BlackStar Film Festival. A Kino Lorber release.

Please note: This screening was rescheduled from January 15.
