Description

FREE SCREENING AND Q&A (Online Registration fee $1: Free at the Door while tickets last)

The inspirational I Will Tell International Film Festival comes to Deerfield Beach for one day only with a powerful celebration of impactful dramas, documentaries and short films from across the world that highlight key societal issues as well as music, creativity and the power of the ordinary person to overcome extraordinary circumstances.

Our Closing Gala is a FREE screening of Ava DuVernay's (SELMA) award-winning documentary 13th. Titled after the Thirteenth Amendment to the United States Constitution, which freed the slaves and prohibited slavery (unless as punishment for a crime), the film explores the intersection of race, justice and mass incarceration in the United States.

This documentary has won a BAFTA, 4 Emmy’s and multiple other awards including Outstanding Original Music and Lyrics for “The Letter to the Free” by Common. It is an electrifying treatise on the prison industrial complex that challenges our ideas on the intersection of race, justice and mass incarceration in the United States.

It has been championed by many across the world who protest against systems of control where a disproportionate number of a subjugated group are cruelly mistreated - whether it’s a Dalit in India or the indigenous pople of Australia, an African American, or a young black man in London.
