Khalik Allah’s FIELD NIGGAS, which premiered at True/False Film Fest, is a stylized documentary chronicling summer nights spent at the intersection of 125th Street and Lexington Avenue in Harlem. Allah weaves together stylized portraiture and non-synch audio conversations with the neighborhood’s most oppressed and exhausted inhabitants, giving us a deeper sense of their dreams, regrets, opinions, arguments and observations. The film, which takes its title from Malcolm X’s lecture “Message to the Grassroots” – and was filmed in July 2014 with the death of Eric Garner occurring mid-production – serves as a passionate call to rise above our social constructs and view each other simply as humans. – American Film Institute
