Making A Scene is hosted once a month at the WHBPAC.  Our goals are to provide a safe place for potentially uncomfortable or tense discourse about diverse cultural or racial norms, as may be depicted in the films shown; to deconstruct stereotypes and question cinematic tropes; and to foster discussion about cinematography and the art of film making. 

Discussion will take place after the film. We welcome passion and perspective; however, please remain respectful to fellow patrons.  Harmful behaviors and language will not be tolerated, and engaging in abusive or hateful speech will result in your removal from the premises.

Tickets are free but reservations are required.

At the dawn of the 20th century, a family in the Gullah community of coastal South Carolina — former West African slaves who adopted many of their ancestors’ Yoruba traditions — suffers a generational split. Young Haagar (Kaycee Moore) wants to move to the mainland away from tradition-bound matriarch Nana (Cora Lee Day). Former prostitute Yellow Mary (Barbara-O) gets a cold shoulder when she returns to the island with her female lover, especially from her sister Viola (Cheryl Lynn Bruce).
