FILM

On Sunday, October 8th, at 7pm at the Emerson Center, The Bozeman Doc Series returns for a fourth season with the Montana premiere of the award-winning new documentary, For Ahkeem.

Beginning one year before the fatal police shooting of a black teenager in nearby Ferguson, Missouri, For Ahkeem is the coming-of-age story of Daje Shelton, a black 17-year-old girl in North St. Louis. Over two years we watch as Daje struggles to maintain focus in school, attends the funerals of friends killed around her, falls in love, and navigates a loving-but-tumultuous relationship with her mother. Through Daje’s intimate story, For Ahkeem illuminates challenges that many black teenagers face in America today, and witnesses the strength, resilience, and determination it takes to survive.

For Ahkeem world-premiered at this year’s Berlin Film Festival to widespread acclaim, and has gone on to screen at major festivals around the world.

Tickets are available at Cactus Records, Movie Lovers, at the door and online at www.bozemandocseries.org.
Tickets are $10; $8 for students
