Director Yance Ford’s film follows the Ford family from the Jim Crow South to New York City; and from the presumed safety of middle-class suburbs to the maelstrom of an unexpected, violent death. Strong Island portrays a family experiencing loss while the world around them engages in historical injustice and the complicity of silence. Facilitated by Associate Dean for International Student Programs James Reese, a discussion follows the screening. (2017; 107 min.) Presented as part of Bates’ 2019 Martin Luther King Jr. Day observances. FMI 207-786-6400 or (after Dec. 21).
