Film Screening: Jinn with Aldrich Teen Fellows


Tickets are FREE, but due to Covid tickets must be reserved in advance by calling the Ridgefield Playhouse box office at 203.438.5795.

Aldrich Teen Fellows are pleased to present Jinn, a film by Nijla Mumin, in a collaborative film series intended to examine, celebrate, and amplify Black cinema led by The Ridgefield Playhouse and nine area organizations.

Summer (actress Zoe Renee) is a 17-year old carefree Black girl whose world is turned upside down when her mother, a popular meteorologist named Jade Jennings (actress Simone Missick), abruptly converts to Islam and becomes a different person, prompting Summer to reevaluate her identity.

A post-screening interview with entertainment reporter Cheryl Washington will take place after the film, serving as a starting point for a community dialogue on topics derived from the film.

Aldrich Teen Fellows is a program designed to give local teenagers an active voice in our Museum. Along with critical professional experience, Fellows will have access to exhibiting artists, Museum staff, and leading professionals in the field.

This event is a part of the Ridgefield Playhouse's Diversity Film Series, featuring ten films presented by different organizations around Ridgefield.
