WITHIN OUR GATES (1920)

Monday 20 February 2017, 7:30pm

Presented as part of the 2017 Portland Black Film Festival.

A digital restoration of this 1920 silent film from pioneering director Oscar Micheaux, with a new score composed by DJ Spooky. Kindly Sylvia Landry (Flo Clements) takes a fundraising trip to Boston in hopes of collecting $5,000 to keep a Southern school for impoverished black children open. She then meets the warmhearted Dr. Vivian (William Smith), who falls in love with Sylvia and travels with her back to the South. There, Dr. Vivian learns about Sylvia's shocking, tragic past and realizes that racism has changed her life forever.

The 2017 Portland Black Film Festival is made possible through the generous support of the Fred W. Fields Fund of the Oregon Community Foundation.
