Film Discussion: 2 Movies Based on August Wilson's plays


We continue the Chai Village LA winter Film Festival featuring 2020 movies 

We will be discussing  two powerful movies based on award winning plays by the Pulitzer prize winning playwright August Wilson

 ( 2016) starring  Denzel Washington and Viola Davis centers around  an African American family in the 1950's while coming to terms with the tension associated with the events of his life 

Ma Rainey's Black Bottom (2020) stars Chadwick Boseman in his last movie and Viola Davis and centers on the tensions that arise at a Chicago Blues club in the 1920's when Ma Rainey joins her band for a recording session.

You must watch both movies in order to participate in the discussion 
Fences can be rented form Amazon Prime
Ma Rainey is available on Netflix
