Black Gold presents Friday!
The Royals newest screening series, BLACK GOLD, is back at it again, folx! Celebrating the best of black cinema and its heroes from then til now, our next screening really gets to the heart of what Black Gold is all about. Is it fun? Is it extra? Have its heroes had an undeniable impact on black culture, nevermind mainstream pop culture at large? All of these questions and more will be answered, several times over, when we come to you this April with FRIDAY.
If youve seen Friday, you need no introduction. If you haven't seen it, first of all, remedy that immediately this April, and, second of all, you've probably already been unknowingly referencing it Bye, Felicia because this movie has GIVEN so much. Fridays continued influence on us is still being felt, and for good reason. Its what happens between Thursday and Saturday, baby.
F. Gary Gray is, without a doubt, a certified Black Gold favourite - after his directorial debut with Friday, he went on to work on other mainstays of black cinema such as 1996s queer camp classic, Set it Off, and 2015s instant nostalgic hit, Straight Outta Compton. And with a script written by Ice Cube and DJ Pooh? Chris Tucker in his first starring role? Criminally underrated femme queens Regina King and Nia Long? Film and television's greatest dads, Bernie Mac and John Witherspoon? Do yourself a kindness and catch this one on the big screen.
This one goes out to anyone who's ever had cereal and water for breakfast.
