KCRW Partner Screening: ‘American Fiction’

KCRW, Vidiots, and Amazon MGM Studios invite you to a special advance screening of American Fiction at Vidiots, located in Eagle Rock followed by a conversation with writer and director, Cord Jefferson and composer, Laura Karpman, moderated by KCRW’s Novena Carmel.

American Fiction is Cord Jefferson’s hilarious directorial debut, which confronts our culture’s obsession with reducing people to outrageous stereotypes. Jeffrey Wright stars as Monk, a frustrated novelist who’s fed up with the establishment profiting from “Black” entertainment that relies on tired and offensive tropes. To prove his point, Monk uses a pen name to write an outlandish “Black” book of his own, a book that propels him to the heart of hypocrisy and the madness he claims to disdain.
