Okwui Okpokwasili on Bronx Gothic

If you’re in or near New York City, Okwui Okpokwasili’s Bronx Gothic is the subject of a documentary film of the same name by Andrew Rossi and is having a two week run at Film Forum (209 W. Houston St., New York, NY 10014) from Wednesday, July 12, through Tuesday, July 25, 2017.

A description from the the New York Times:
“The film follows Ms. Okpokwasili as she prepares for her final performance of the work not far from her childhood home. Mr. Rossi honors the fullness of her live performances, showing long stretches intact, while illuminating the relationships, in particular between daughters and mothers, that orbit her process.”

Check out the interview we did with Okwui when she brought Bronx Gothic to the Contemporary Arts Center last year.
