“Judas and the Black Messiah,” the highly anticipated film starring Daniel Kaluuya, Jesse Plemmons, and LaKeith Stanfield, is one of three new movies announced Tuesday that will be part of the Sundance Film Festival’s satellite series in Houston.
The other two movies are the documentary “Amy Tan: Unintended Memoir,” directed by James Redford (Robert’s late son), and the speculative-fiction drama “Mayday” from first-time features director Karen Cinorre. They join the previously announced films “Coda,” “I Was a Simple Man” and “Passing.”
All three films are making their world premieres.
All the screenings are at Moonstruck Drive-In with “Mayday” showing at 7:30 p.m. Jan. 31 and it’s followed by “Judas,” which tells the story of Black Panther Fred Hampton and his betrayal by informant William O’Neal, screening at 8 p.m. Feb. 1 and then “Amy Tan” shows at 7:30 p.m. Feb. 2.
Other activities announced include a drive-in screening of the 2020 Texas film “Miss Juneteenth” at the DeLuxe Theater Pop-Up Drive-In. It will be accompanied by a virtual converation between the film’s director Channing Godfrey Peoples and “Boyhood” and “Dazed and Confused” director Richard Linklater. The event takes place at 4 p.m. Jan. 28. Registration is free but required.
Tickets for in-person screenings are available now. For more information, go to cinemahtx.org and festival.sundance.org
