Netflix’s Passing: Screening and Ruth Negga in Conversation with David Nugent

Netflix’s Passing
Online tickets are for the Talk only. They do not include the screening.

Join Academy Award-nominated actress Ruth Negga for a screening of her critically-acclaimed new Netflix film Passing — based on the classic novel by Nella Larsen — followed by a conversation.

Passing tells the story of two Black women, Irene Redfield (Tessa Thompson) and Clare Kendry (Ruth Negga), who can “pass” as white but choose to live on opposite sides of the color line during the height of the Harlem Renaissance in late 1920s New York. Hear Negga discuss the film — a remarkable performance adapting a brilliantly prescient novel for the screen that is a riveting examination of obsession, repression and the lies people tell themselves and others to protect their carefully constructed realities.
