Summit Hosts First Area Screening of 'Title VII' Nov. 17; Story of Same-Race Discrimination Filmed at Fairleigh Dickinson


SUMMIT, NJ - The Film Society of Summit is set to host the first area screening of "Title VII," a film which examines racial discrimination in the workplace and is based on the novel "Within The Walls" by Daisy M. Jenkins, November 17 at 8 p.m., at MONDO.

Nicole Franklin, the film's director, will be be in attendance to share her insights on making the micro-budget film, which was shot in eight days during the summer of 2016 on the Florham Park campus of Fairleigh Dickinson University (FDU). Students and faculty in the FDU film program crewed and produced the film.

"Title VII" features the fictional protagonist Hillary Kelsey, the head of IT consulting firm 'Sanger International'. Kelsey is both powerful and successful, but no one can figure out why a company run by a Black CEO has no Black employees.

Covering a single day, the film's story begins with an incident that reminds the CEO of her 'place' in our racially-charged society, details problems with a pending account that could make or break the firm, and includes the appearance of a mystery man determined to turn her life upside down.

Advance tickets, priced at $12, can be purchased in person at MONDO or reserved by contacting summitfilm@gmail.com. Ticket purchased at the door will be $14, and seating is limited.
