February Book + Film Club: Colorization/In the Heat of the Night


Wed Feb 22 2023 at 07:00 pm to 09:00 pm


Sidewalk Film | Birmingham, AL

Join us for Book + Film Club! Each month, we will read a book related to the craft of filmmaking or a literary work that has been adapted to a film. At the end of the month we will meet to watch a related film and then discuss!
Our February 2023 session will delve into the history of Black films through the book Colorization: One Hundred Years of Black Films in a White World paired with the neo-noir classic In the Heat of the Night starring Sidney Poitier.
Book: Colorization: One Hundred Years of Black Films in a White World by Wil Haygood
- “At once a film book, a history book, and a civil rights book, Haygood’s tome is a stunning achievement in every possible way: extensively researched, intricately detailed, beautifully written, and massively entertaining. Colorization is, without a doubt, not only the very best film book of 2021, but it is also one of the best books of the year in any genre. An absolutely essential read.” --Scott Neumyer
Film: In the Heat of the Night (1967, dir. Norman Jewison)
- "It's a pleasure, all too rare, to watch two splendid actors pitted against each other with equal force such as Sidney Poitier and Rod Steiger in the exceptional murder mystery, "In the Heat of the Night." - New York Daily News
