Robinson Film Center (RFC) will host a special screening of the film Till featuring a live introduction and Q&A with the film’s writer and producer Keith Beauchamp on November 10th at 7pm.

According to the film’s official website, “Till is a profoundly emotional and cinematic film about the true story of Mamie Till Mobley’s relentless pursuit of justice for her 14 year old son, Emmett Till, who, in 1955, was lynched while visiting his cousins in Mississippi. In Mamie’s poignant journey of grief turned to action, we see the universal power of a mother’s ability to change the world.” The movie has been playing at RFC since October 28th, and has garnered stellar reviews nationwide during its theatrical run.

Beauchamp, who co-wrote the film with Michael Reilly and Chinonye Chukwu, grew up in Baton Rouge and has familial ties to Shreveport. Beauchamp began researching and writing for a documentary about the Till case in the late 1990s, building a close relationship with Mamie Till Mobley that lasted until her death in 2003.  He has been featured on ’60 Minutes’, ABC World News Tonight ‘Person of the Week,’ Court TV, MSNBC, ‘Good Morning America,’ CNN, BBC as well as in hundreds of publications around the world including The New York Times, Washington Post, USA Today, Associated Press and the Chicago Sun Times. Beauchamp’s past works included TV One’s ‘Murder in Black and White’ hosted by Rev. Al Sharpton and ‘Wanted Justice: Johnnie Mae Chappell’ for the History Channel and ‘BET’s Exceptional Black Women.’

 “We are so honored that Keith is taking time out of his insanely busy schedule to come to Shreveport to present his film,” said Wendell Riley, Executive Director of RFC, “It is important for this story to be shared with our community, and to have the opportunity for additional insight and discourse related to the movie is extremely meaningful to us at RFC.”
