CURB to present The Color of Fear
What happens when a documentary shows eight men from different racial groups involved in an honest dialogue about race?
You get an informative, and at times dramatic, film that exposes some of the pain caused by racism in North America in the 1990s.
Anti-racism group CURB will screen The Color of Fear, considered one of the most powerful and influential race relations documentaries in the 20th century.
The free screening will take place at Pennos Wharf in St Georges on Friday at 6.45pm.
A CURB spokeswoman said: The documentary deals with the pain and anguish that racism has caused in the lives of North American men of Asian, European, Latin and African descent.
Out of their confrontations and struggles to understand and trust each other emerges an emotional and insightful portrayal into the type of dialogue most of us fear, but hope will happen sometime in our lifetime.
The film challenges viewers to re-examine their thinking about the material they are viewing and question the assumptions and perceptions they have previously acquired.
Doors open at 6.30pm; donations are welcome.
