Treasures from the Yale Film Archive: PARIAH

October 10, 2022

Pariah (Dee Rees, 2011, 86 mins)
A Brooklyn teenager comes out and comes of age in the debut feature film from writer/director Dee Rees. Lou Lumenick called the Sundance hit "a look at the joy, confusion, and heartbreak of adolescence that's both culture- and locale-specific and, at the same time, universal." Adepero Oduye gives what Stephen Holden called "an incandescent performance" in the lead role. 35mm print from the Yale Film Archive.

Free and open to the public. All attendees must be asymptomatic and fully vaccinated against COVID-19 (including boosters when eligible) and should be prepared to show proof of vaccination. Yale-approved masks are required at all times.
