Public cinema is a NY summer staple, but it’s rare that the films shown resonate with all audience members, and all experiences.

Now, thanks to the work of ImageNation cinema in partnership with Harlem Week, and the National Black Programing Consortium (NBPC)–outdoor screenings take an educational and culturally relevant approach, allowing New Yorkers and film-lovers alike can gather for both entertainment and historical appreciation.

Join the collectives and the community this Saturday, August 18th, for public screenings of Tidal’s new documentary A$AP Ferg in Liberia: Where Stars Are Born, and Oscar nominated James Baldwin doc I Am Not Your Negro. A music-filled night, complete commentary from A$ap Ferg himself and I Am Not Your Negro producer Hérbert Peck, ImageNation Outdoors grants audiences a soul enriching experience to excite and ignite.

With this year marking the 15th Annual ImageNation Outdoor Film and Music Festival, the free gathering has made its mark: dedicating itself to promoting independent artistry–largely film and music–relevant to the global Black experience.

Spaces like these are so crucial. They provide a catalyst for cultural connection and revelation, the arts work themselves deeper into the fabric of black expression and recreation.

Make sure to show up and let loose at St. Nicholas Park Great Lawn in Harlem, and get more information here!
