Willa Cofield THE NINE O’CLOCK WHISTLE (2020, 62 minutes, digital)
For years on Saturday night, white authorities in Enfield, N.C. blew a siren, warning Blacks to clear the downtown streets. This curfew was one of many demeaning practices used to keep the Black population separate and unequal. One fateful night, three days after the March on Washington, hundreds of Blacks on the streets of downtown Enfield refused to heed the blowing of the nine o’clock whistle.
7:10PM NEWFILMMAKERS SECOND FEATURE FILM PRESENTATION
Juliet Ellis RUBY (2020, 77 minutes, digital)
In the north of England, a mother returns home after an all night outing to find her adolescent daughter Ruby waiting alone. Both tenderly loved and carelessly neglected by her mother, Ruby copes through her imagination. She tries to create a manageable world from her drawings and cut out pages of catalogues. “You can’t cut out a perfect future,” her mother warns her. And then, when her mother lets the unimaginable happen, Ruby’s world collapses and she is left on her own.
