#OUTINTHENIGHT #NJ4

Anyone got deets on this film?

Here’s what I got from the Facebook:

OUT IN THE NIGHT (formerly titled The Fire This Time) follows the journey of a group of African American teenagers who went to a gay-friendly neighborhood in New York City for a night out. These lesbian and gender non-conforming friends, Patreese, Renata, Terrain and Venice, were confronted by an older man on the street. They defended themselves. Strangers jumped in to support them and a fight ensued. Only the women were rounded up by police and charged and convicted as perpetrators of gang assault. They became known as The New Jersey 4.OUT IN THE NIGHT follows their journey to Rikers Island, to the courtroom, and through slanderous media coverage that labeled them a “Wolfpack” and “Lesbian Gang”. While exploring the fight from all sides through the security camera footage that captured it, that hot August night in 2006 can be seen from many perspectives. But our film’s purpose is to examine the events after the fight: biased media coverage likening the women to “man-hating” animals, and unprecedentedly harsh sentencing by the court. This story shows how four young, queer women of color were unfairly criminalized for defending themselves.

It’s currently running the film festival circuit, but you can keep checking the website for new screenings: www.outinthenight.com

Bounty hunting she shall go :D

This is genius at work

I am seriously SO impressed with the costume she’s put together here :D

Don’t forget her 7 R2 units. Zappy, Glitchy, Laggy, Sparky, Oily, Buzzy, and Bash Console

I wanna see the fight scene on Ursula’s flying barge where she gets thrown into the ocean vortex.

Some motherfuckers have it in their mind that just because they’re family you’re suppose to have an unlimited amount of tolerance for their bullshit.

You think Michael Jackson “invented” this shit?This is Bill Bailey in 1955!

Mind blown!

Michael Jackson never claimed he ~invented~ the moonwalk. He ALWAYS credited his inspirations for his work, you only have to watch one live Michael performance and see his inspirations: Bill Bailey, James Brown, Fred Astaire. The trilby and loafers are a massive giveaway when it comes to spotting Michaels inspirations. Jesus fucking Christ has anyone seen Smooth Criminal though? …Hello? Bandwagon?

"Study the greats and become greater.” Michael Jackson

When did anyone say he “invented it”?

in his autobiography he specfically describes how he was inspired by watching breakdancers perform and how they broke it down for him. so it’s not just that he was inspired by the greats, he was inspired by hip hop culture and contemporary (at the time) Black performance culture.
