Utah Film Center’s Black, Bold & Brilliant Presents “Blurring the Color Line”

As part of our Black, Bold & Brilliant series, Utah Film Center, in partnership with KRCL, is excited to announce our upcoming film screening and post-discussion of Blurring the Color Line – Wednesday, December 6th at 7 pm at the Downtown Salt Lake City Library. What did it mean to be Chinese in Black spaces during segregation? Follow director Crystal Kwok’s journey of discovery, as she digs into the ways her grandmother’s family navigated life as grocery store owners in the black neighborhood of Augusta, Georgia. Blurring the Color Line is a personal family story told alongside memories from the larger Chinese and Black communities in Georgia, which opens up uncomfortable but necessary conversations around anti-Black racism and the deeply rooted structure of white power and Chinese patriarchy. Which fountain did the Chinese drink from? Where did they sit on the bus? An important entrance into all of our connected histories which many of us never knew or dared speak about. Featuring a roundtable discussion by the Black, Bold & Brilliant team and Ze Min Xiao, President and CEO of the Center for Economic Opportunity and Belonging. Purchase your ticket at:

Celebrate 10 years of Utah's Marriage Equality Act with a free film screening of “Church & State”

Utah Film Center is celebrating the 10th anniversary of Utah’s Marriage Equality Act with a free community film screening of the documentary "Church & State", on Wednesday, December 20th at 7pm at the Rose Wagner Performing Arts Center in Salt Lake. "Church & State" is the improbable story of a brash, inexperienced gay activist and a tiny Salt Lake City law firm that joins forces to topple Utah’s gay marriage ban. The film’s ride on the bumpy road to equality in Utah offers a glimpse at the Mormon church’s influence in state politics and the squabbles inside the gay community that nearly derailed a chance to make history. "Church & State" is a story of triumph, setback and a little-known lawsuit that should have failed, but instead paved the way for a U.S. Supreme Court decision that legalized gay unions nationwide. Following the film Doug Fabrizio will host a post-film conversation with "Church & State" film director Holly Tuckett. Reserve your FREE spot at: Watch the Film Trailer at:
