I Am Not Your Negro ★★★★½

This is not just a documentary to stir up its audience with rage about the injustices of the world. ITs so much more. 'I am Not your Negro' is a retrospective of the black civil rights movement and also a revisionist one. Raul Peck uses this history to consider how this has effected our contemporary world through its powerful narration, structure and use of archival footage. Having read some of the writings by James Baldwin, the film uses his work in a truly evocative way, but it is never heavy-handed or forced. An astonishing documentary that continues to permiate in my head a week later.
