Loved and hated by some people we apply a forensic historical and cultural analysis of this controversial film adding in little known facts about the producers, actors and director to answer the following and more questions.

  • Is Django a symbol of black male empowerment ?
  • Why was this fictional film, with a majority black cast so welcomed by Hollywood while the true story of Red Tails, with a majority black cast, rejected and dismissed ?
  • What about the actual stories of rebellious slaves ? Do such movies exist ?
  • What obvious and hidden messages were in the film ?

Dr Lez Henry is an author, cultural critic and communit activist. Brother Hakim ‘the Film Doctor’, has been researching Hollywood films and presenting breakdowns for several years . Together these ‘Street Surgeons’ they will bring an unforgettable session of reasoning which includes you the audience. So bring your minds and make sure they are open
