NYWIFT Industry Screening + Q&A: ‘Test Pattern’

February 23, 2021 @ 4:00 PM - 5:00 PM


Join us starting Friday, February 19th for a screening of Test Pattern followed by a conversation with Director Shatara Michelle Ford on February 23rd at 4pm ET.

“Everything is about sex, except sex, which is about power.” – Oscar Wilde

Test Pattern is part psychological horror, part realist drama set against the backdrop of national discussions around inequitable health care & policing, the #MeToo movement, and race in America. The film follows an interracial couple whose relationship is put to the test after a Black woman is sexually assaulted and her white boyfriend drives her from hospital to hospital in search of a rape kit.

The film analyzes the effects of the systemic factors and social conditioning women face when navigating sex and consent within the American patriarchy, along with exploring institutional racism from a Black female point of view.

Screening Dates: Film available from February 19th – 23rd

Join the Q&A: February 23rd at 4PM ET
