Presented by Indigo Arts Alliance in partnership with SPACE, funding provided in part by the Maine Humanities Council.

Indigo Arts Alliance in partnership with SPACE is bringing the power of Black storytelling to Maine, May 3rd – 5th, 2019. Black, Brown + Indigo is a series of films that each provide a glimpse into African and African-American life across the globe.

A mix of narrative and documentary features and shorts, the films highlight the diversity and complexity of Black lives across the Diaspora. The series seeks to bring Portland-area audiences together across communities to enjoy film and engage in meaningful dialogue, using cinema as a means to deepen their knowledge and understanding of African, Caribbean, South American and African-American culture. 

See space.org/events for the full listing of Black, Brown + Indigo screenings
