Justice in Film
Join us for the New-York Historical Society’s film series, featuring opening remarks by notable directors, writers, actors, and historians. This series will explore how film has tackled social conflict, morality, and the perennial struggles between right and wrong that are waged from the highest levels of government to the smallest of local communities.
The new pathbreaking exhibition Revolution! compares three globally influential revolutions in America, France and Haiti. Join curator Valerie Paley for an exploration of the origins of the revolutionary ideals of freedom, equality and self-rule. See the British Stamp Act that imposed the taxes that enraged colonial Americans, along with rare images from the first successful slave revolt in the Western Hemisphere. Gallery tours are limited to 35 guests per tour. Please buy tickets in advance.
