The DFT is hosting free screening of the Oscar® nominated 1970 film King: A Filmed Record… Montgomery to Memphis. Constructed from a wealth of archival footage, this remarkable documentary is a monumental labor of love that follows Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr. from 1955 to 1968, in his rise from regional activist to world-renowned leader of the Civil Rights movement.
Rare footage of Dr. King’s speeches, protests, and arrests are interspersed with passages that include some of the era’s high-profile supporters as well as opponents of the cause. Restored to its full-length by the Library of Congress, this complete, original version of King: A Filmed Record… Montgomery to Memphis remains a cinematic national treasure that gives viewers an appreciation of the personal challenges he endured and the legacy he left behind. Admission is free with registration. (185 minutes)
A virtual streaming option will be available also. The viewing link will be mailed beginning Monday, January 17, and the film will be available for streaming until 9 pm January 21. Please register to view or see film in person at the Detroit Film Theatre.
