Dubbing the collection "Understanding Black Stories," Cineplex writes: "In a time when many are turning to movies to become informed and empowered, we want to help. This collection of important films was curated to elevate Black stories, artists and filmmakers and spark discussion."
On the Criterion Channel, we're highlighting films that focus on Black Lives, and have taken down the paywall on as many of these titles as we can, so even if you aren’t a subscriber you can watch them for free. https://t.co/SfE7BeIPhb pic.twitter.com/1wG2GAGO9Y— Criterion Channel (@criterionchannl) June 5, 2020
Cineplex announced the arrival of the collection the same day Criterion lifted the paywall on many films they're currently highlighting that focus on Black lives.
Criterion also established "an employee-guided fund with a $25,000 initial contribution and an ongoing $5000 monthly commitment to support organizations fighting racism in America."
