The Paris Theater is hosting a movie series that looks at the larger picture of race in America with stories that are deeply personal, focusing on individuals. "And these films do more than hold a mirror up to society; they change the picture and the conversation, affecting history through the act of storytelling," the theater notes. The films include Bruised (directed by Halle Berry), Mudbound (dir. Dee Rees), Imitation of Life (1934 dir. John M. Stahl, 1959 dir. Douglas Sirk), The Harder They Fall (dir. Jeymes Samuel), Daughters of the Dust (dir. Julie Dash), Shadows (dir. John Cassavetes), Monster's Ball (dir. Marc Forster), Creed (dir. Ryan Coogler), Concrete Cowboy (dir. Ricky Staub), Sergeant Rutledge (dir. John Ford) and Loving (dir. Jeff Nichols).
