Q&A with Filmmakers Paul Dallas, James N. Kienitz Wilkins & Robin Schavoir following 7:30pm screening on Saturday, 8/3
When a young white couple’s car breaks down after a weekend getaway, they’re helped by an older black man who inspires them with his creative wisdom. When they discover six months later that the words he spoke might not be his own, they’re horrified, fixating on his “crime” while forced to confront the originality of their own lives. Written by James N. Kienitz Wilkins and Robin Schavoir, The Plagiarists is a dramatic comedy about the clash of money and culture, reality and desire, race and identity. It’s a social satire about who has the privilege to say what in today’s world. 2019. 1h16m.
