Opening Selection at NCBFF: Night Catches Us

Director Tonya Hamilton's NIGHT CATCHES US, starring Anthony Mackey and Kerry Washington, is hailed as a "rare American-independent film to go beyond the private dramas of its protagonists, imagining them as players in broader historical moments." In 1976, after years of mysterious absence, Marcus returns to the Philadelphia neighborhood where he came of age in the midst of the Black Power movement. While his arrival raises suspicion among his family and former neighbors, he finds acceptance from his old friend Patricia and her daughter. However, Marcus quickly finds himself at odds with the organization he once embraced, whose members suspect he orchestrated the slaying of their former comrade-in-arms. In a startling sequence of events, Marcus must protect a secret that could shatter everyone’s beliefs, as he rediscovers his forbidden passion for Patricia. Rated R
