Porter's 1903 silent movie Uncle Tom's Cabin, with a soundtrack by experimental jazz musician, pianist, and composer Jason Moran; followed by two films selected by the artist, Paris is Burning (1990) and My Brother's Wedding (1983), with an introduction and enlightening commentary by the Modern's curator, Andrea Karnes.
