After the film, a panel will discuss the film in the context of a wider conversation on the theme of “Filmmaking in ‘Foreign’ Cultures & Subcultures.” When conducting filmmaking, journalism, or research as an “outsider,” what responsibilities do we have? Who gets to tell whose stories, and how do we navigate the line between collaboration and exploitation?

Every ticket to our special launch event includes reserved seating for FOR AHKEEM & the panel discussion — plus a reception (with appetizers and a complimentary drink).

ABOUT:
In this intimate coming-of-age documentary set amid the marginalized neighborhoods of north St. Louis, 17-year-old Daje Shelton navigates the biased criminal justice policies and economic devastation that have set up so many black youth like her to fail. When a school fight lands her in a court-supervised alternative high school, she struggles to maintain focus while attending the funerals of friends killed around her, falling in love with a classmate named Antonio, and navigating a loving-but-tumultuous relationship with her mother. As events in Ferguson just four miles from her home seize the national spotlight, Daje learns she is pregnant and must contend with the reality of raising a young black boy in America. For Ahkeem illuminates the challenges faced by so many black teenagers today and witnesses the strength, resilience, and determination it takes to survive.
