Harpur Cinema Presents: The Inheritance
Ephraim Asili, USA 2020, 101 min
Friday, October 13, and Sunday, October 15: Lecture Hall 6, 7:30 p.m. Doors open at 7:00 p.m. $4 Single Admission.
After nearly a decade exploring different facets of the African diaspora — and his own place within it — Ephraim Asili makes his feature-length debut with The Inheritance, an astonishing ensemble work set almost entirely within a West Philadelphia house where a community of young, Black artists and activists form a collective. A scripted drama of characters attempting to work towards political consensus — based partly on Asili’s own experiences in a Black liberationist group — weaves with a documentary recollection of the Philadelphia liberation group MOVE, the victim of a notorious police bombing in 1985.
