White Lies, Black Sheep

White Lies, Black Sheep, James Spooner's latest film, chronicles a young man's struggle with racial identity in New York City's underground rock scene. Spooner wowed film festivals with Afro Punk, a documentary exploring black life in the alternative music world. He's followed suit with White Lies, a fictitious, documentary-style drama filmed in the Big Apple's nightlife scene. In the film, AJ yearns to reconnect to his black heritage but quickly realizes many of his friendships are based on his ability to blend in with the white crowd. The screening will be followed by a discussion led by Ryan Grimes, who helped score the film. 6 p.m. Indie Houston, 1816 Calumet. For information, visit www.indiehouston.org. $5.
