Horror Noire: A History of Black Horror
83 MIN / 2019 / USA / ENGLISH / DOCUMENTARY
Delving into a century of genre films that by turns utilized, caricatured, exploited, sidelined, and finally embraced black culture, Horror Noire traces a secret history of Black Americans in Hollywood through their connection to the horror genre. Adapting executive producer Dr. Robin R. Means Coleman’s seminal book of the same name, Horror Noire will present the living and the dead, using new interviews with scholars and creators, from the voices who survived the genre’s past trends to those shaping its future.
