Grab your popcorn and tune in for these outdoor-focused films created by Black filmmakers! Naa Akua will moderate a talk-back with filmmaker Analise Cleopatra following the viewing.

  • Pedal Through (dir. Analise Cleopatra, Aly Nicklas)- Despite never having camped or ridden a bike off the pavement, Analise Cleopatra sets out to take on a week-long backcountry mountain biking adventure in Central Oregon on a journey of self healing and growth. Along with fellow beginner Dejuanae Toliver and professional mountain biker Brooklyn Bell, she discovers the joy of sleeping under the stars, the power of biking and the strength that comes with pedaling through.
  • Royaltee (dir. Kamari Bright)- This poetic short film highlights the hidden nobility of even the persecuted parts of Black culture among the majestic backdrop of the Pacific Northwest.
