NEGRITA, the debut documentary film from director Magdalena Albizu, interrogates the cultural prejudice and presumptions surrounding the lives of Afro Latina women in America. Albizu, a self-described negrita, explores an unconscious ideology of anti-Blackness in which both American and Latino cultures perpetuate a false narrative of Black as undesirable otherness. Through family pictures, childhood videos, and frank conversations, NEGRITA uses the director's own personal history to illuminate the larger tapestry of shared experiences throughout the Black and Latin community. Hand in hand with women from the Dominican Republic, Puerto Rico, Honduras, and Panama, Albizu and her subjects collectively confront their own Black identities, empowering themselves as Afro Latinas. Following the screening, the director will engage in a post-show Q&A to discuss her process of embracing her African history and her family's struggle to accept her journey.
