Post-show discussion with Charles Burnett 
Adapted from the novel by Gary Paulsen, Nightjohn tells the powerful and inspirational story of Sarny, a twelve-year-old slave girl whose life is changed when a runaway slave teaches her how to read and write. Rarely shown, this is one of the most emotionally powerful films by independent film pioneer Charles Burnett, who will be present for a discussion following the screening.
