About this event:
In partnership with the Chicago Public Library and the Chicago Tribune Foundation, the Gene Siskel Film Center presents selections from the Best of the Black Harvest Film Festival.
The Last Fall
The envy of family and friends, hunky football player Kyle Bishop (Lance Gross) is hiding a secret that shames him: his NFL team has unceremoniously dumped him. He slinks back to his mom, broke and unemployed at the age of 25. Director Matthew A. Cherry, a former NFL wide receiver, entertainingly reveals the unknown side of a pro sports career as Kyle puzzles over how to earn a living when all he knows is football and life has moved on without him. (2012, Matthew A. Cherry, DVD projection, 97 min.)
For the past 18 years, the Gene Siskel Film Center of the School of the Art Institute of Chicago has presented the Black Harvest Film Festival. It is the Midwest’s largest and longest–running festival dedicated to telling stories of the black experience.
This program is free and open to the public.
