Black and White


With James Toback in person

Dir. James Toback, 1999, 98 mins. 35mm. With Brooke Shields, Robert Downey, Jr., Gaby Hoffman, Jared Leto, Joe Pantoliano, Bijou Phillips, Ben Stiller, Mike Tyson. Brooke Shields plays a documentary filmmaker shooting a film about why white kids are fascinated by hip-hop culture. Real athletes and celebrities mix with fictional characters, and Toback presents an idea-jammed, sexually audacious slice of uptown and downtown New York life. Toback will introduce the film and participate in a discussion following the screening.
