I Am Not Your Negro

  • Director: Raoul Peck
  • Genre(s): Documentary
  • Rating: NR
  • Running Time: 95 min.

Director Raoul Peck envisions the book James Baldwin never finished - a radical narration about race in America, using the writer’s original words. He draws upon James Baldwin’s notes on the lives and assassinations of Medgar Evers, Malcolm X, and Martin Luther King Jr to explore and bring a fresh and radical perspective to the current racial narrative in America.

"A stirring, stinging memorial."
- Deborah Young, Hollywood Reporter
"Baldwin’s insights originate from 1979, but they still speak volumes, and Peck makes their observations sting."
- Tim Grierson, Screen International
"It is a striking work of storytelling. By assembling the scattered images and historical clips suggested by Baldwin’s writing, I Am Not Your Negro is a cinematic séance, and one of the best movies about the civil rights era ever made."
- Jordan Hoffman, The Guardian
"Peck has made one of this year’s finest documentaries. At once pulsing with anger and yearning for compassion, it’s an examination of past and present America as a cycle where the backdrop has changed and particulars have remained the same."
- Michael Snydel, The Film Stage
"It is a searing and topical indictment of racial prejudice and hatred in America that makes for uneasy viewing and is not easily forgotten. "
- Deborah Young, The Hollywood Reporter
"If you watch "I Am Not Your Negro," you'll spend a kaleidoscopic and transporting 90 minutes living inside James Baldwin's mind, coming thrillingly close to his existential perception of the hidden meaning of race in America. [...] Raoul Peck’s I Am Not Your Negro is the rare movie that might be called a spiritual documentary. "
- Owen Gleiberman, Variety
