Following sold out screenings at the Melbourne International Film Festival, ACMI is excited to announce the Academy Award nominated documentary I Am Not Your Negro will be screening at ACMI Cinemas from 11 September.

Director Raoul Peck says; "Never before has Baldwin's voice been so needed, so powerful, so radical, so visionary"
