Nominated for 7 Academy Awards

Marvel Studios’ Black Panther follows T’Challa who, after the death of his father, the King of Wakanda, returns home to the isolated, technologically advanced African nation to succeed to the throne and take his rightful place as king. But when a powerful old enemy reappears, T’Challa’s mettle as king—and Black Panther—is tested when he is drawn into a formidable conflict that puts the fate of Wakanda and the entire world at risk. Faced with treachery and danger, the young king must rally his allies and release the full power of Black Panther to defeat his foes and secure the safety of his people and their way of life.

D.A. Bullock

Each First Thursday Films screening at the Capri is followed by a passionate discussion of the movie. For Black Panther we welcome D.A. Bullock, founder of Bully Creative Shop, a feature film, documentary, media art and digital content social enterprise.  D.A. is a foremost leader in the field of story-based organizing in the Twin Cities and has done extensive work to affirm and elevate the stories and histories of marginalized communities. His cinematography work can currently be seen in the documentary film Vanishing Pearls, which tells the story of Louisiana Black oyster fishermen and their struggle and trauma after the BP Gulf of Mexico oil spill in 2010.

Up next: The Capri hosts several screenings during the 2019 Minneapolis St. Paul International Film Festival, April 4 – 20.  Watch for details here and on the Capri’s Facebook page.
