February Feature Announced: NIKE KADRI

We’re really looking forward to Monday’s reading of Paris Crayton III’s “STUCK” and are excited to announce our February Feature: NIKE KADRI!

Mark your calendars for Monday, February 12, 2018, 7:30pm @ the cell, we will feature a reading of Nike Kadri’s film, “Paradigm Table”.




Four first-generation millennials come together on Christmas Day to celebrate ten years of friendship only to discover that their past mistakes might tear them apart. Paradigm Table is a dark comedy and coming-of-age film about first generation millennial identity and politics.

The film centers around a first-gen Nigerian female and first-gen Chinese male couple and their first-gen friends a Mexican trans woman and a British-Iranian hijab-wearing lesbian. Paradigm Table asks you to empathize with their journey into adulthood and how that journey either breaks us or makes us.
