NYU’s Office of the Vice Provost invites you for a conversation with screenwriter Misan Sagay and a screening of her powerful film, Belle, on Thursday, October 29th at 6pm at the Iris & B Gerald Cantor Film Center at 36 E 8th St, New York, NY 10003

Professor Renée Blake (FAS Linguistics and Social and Cultural Analysis; Director, Africana Studies) will moderate a brief conversation with screenwriter Misan Sagay before the film screening. Event begins promptly at 6:00 pm. Doors open at 5:45 pm.

Belle is the 2013 multi-award winning film that brings us powerfully close to a historical moment where race, class, gender and justice collide. Prior to the screening, screenwriter Misan Sagay will share her own story, reflecting on her personal connection with the main character and the 1779 painting that inspired the film.
