Film Screening: Sixteen Thousand Dollars

Official Selection 2020 Pan African Film Festival - Nominated for Best Narrative Short

Tickets $14 "Black in America" Shorts Series

Sixteen Thousand Dollars is a narrative short film on reparations, derived from the DSA AfroSocialist caucus and endorsed by DSA National in 2019. This is a political education project on reparations backed by the DSA Fund. We invite you to the World Premiere here in LA!


Sixteen Thousand Dollars is a comedy that imagines a world in which a struggling black college grad wakes up to find that reparations have finally been paid to descendants of slaves. With this new found capital, they will decide how best to spend their reparations, totaling a mere $16,000. Receiving reparations opens up old wounds of slavery, Jim Crow, and systematic oppression that they must evaluate on their journey.
