The 24th presented by Houston Cinema Arts Festival 2020
November 14, 2020 @ 3:30 pm – November 16, 2020 @ 3:30 pm
For the Houston Cinema Arts Festival 2020, Houston Cinema Arts Society features virtual and drive-in screenings of films in addition to live stream performances, interactive experiences, and Q&A and panels. This year, HCAF celebrates “Urbana,” inspired by the globally popular Spanish-language genre música Urbana, which has its origin in African and the trans-Atlantic slave trade.
As a part of the Urbana section for the Houston Cinema Arts Festival 2020 (Nov 12 – Nov 22), the virtual screening of The 24th will be available for two days from Nov 14, 3:30PM. Based on the Houston Riot of 1917, a mutiny by 156 African American soldiers, The 24th depicts the brutal violence and abuse suffered by the soldiers at the hands of Houston police officers.
