In partnership with BASE (Black Alliance & Social Empowerment), AIFF “Best of the Fests” series celebrates Malcolm X Day (May 19), with a FREE airing of John Akomfrah’s Seven Songs for Malcolm X from May 18-21. 

An homage to the inspirational African-American civil rights leader, SEVEN SONGS FOR MALCOLM X collects testimonies, eyewitness accounts and dramatic reenactments to tell the life, legacy, loves, and losses of Malcolm X. Featuring interviews with Malcolm's widow Betty Shabazz, Spike Lee, and many others, SEVEN SONGS looks for the meaning behind the resurgence of interest in the man whose X always stood for the unknown.

 "What makes Seven Soseven songs for malcolm xngs so provocative is that Akomfrah shows respect for  many different interpretations of Malcolm, suggesting that this revolutionary figure belongs to everybody."  - The Chicago Reader
