Any updates for future events and rescheduled performances will be posted online and on the Arts at Emory calendar. Visit here for more information on Emory University’s response to COVID-19. “Not Coming to a Theater Near You” is a student-run festival, programmed by third-year film studies major and festival founder Evan Amaral (supervised by Department Chair Dr. Matthew H. Bernstein), and sponsored by the Department of Film and Media Studies. None of the films from our diverse selection have screened theatrically in Atlanta — one of the country’s largest, fastest-growing hubs of film production — so Emory brings them here to be shared with local film lovers. The debut feature and final work by acclaimed Chinese novelist Hu Bo, who tragically committed suicide at age 29, this epic portrait of four lonely, interconnected souls searching a bleak urban landscape for a mythical elephant is an extraordainarily beautiful work of cinema — both in its unimpeachable craft and in its deep reserve of kindness, always shining a light on its characters’ humanity among the darkness that encroaches upon them. A KimStim release. Recommended parking: Oxford Road Parking Deck, Peavine Parking Deck + White Hall 208 | 301 Dowman Drive Campus Events

Through his early shorts and 2015 debut "Field Niggas", along with his 2017 book of photography "Souls Against the Concrete", Khalik Allah has emerged as one of the most essential voices in documentary over the past decade. Moving from New York City to Jamaica in "Black Mother", his second feature-length film, Allah crafts an impossibly evocative, thrillingly experimental portrait of home and of a nation.
