TD Presents African Heritage Month

14A | 2021 |1h 18min

Based on a true story, I'm Charlie Walker stars Mike Colter as trucking and construction entrepreneur Charlie Walker. In 1971, two oil tankers violently collided off the San Francisco coast, spilling millions of gallons of crude oil and creating an environmental disaster. Against all odds, Charlie was able to secure one of the most lucrative contracts to clean the coastline that threatened much of the San Francisco Bay. 

With only three trucks, an incredible work ethic and a lot of heart, the film recounts the racial discrimination Walker endured as he tries to save the coastline all while fighting institutional racism from the very company that hired him in the first place.


Tickets will be given out 30 minutes before showtime.
