Join us on the opening night of the Film Festival of Joy as we explore Romantic Joy through two films — Something Good Negro Kiss and I Know Where I’m Going.

Hear from film historian Allyson Nadia Field, who will introduce Something Good and tell us how it was made and found.


Something Good, Negro Kiss

This short film brings us moments of Black love from 1898 as a couple holds hands and kisses.

I Know Where I’m Going

Joan Webster (Wendy Hiller), a very determined young English woman, boards a train to marry a rich industrialist on an island in the Hebrides. But much to her frustration, the trip is delayed again and again by bad weather and stormy seas. Perhaps the spirit of Scotland has other plans for her — in the form of handsome Torquil MacNeil (Roger Livesey). Film greats Michael Powell and Emeric Pressburger shot this magical love story on the Isle of Mull. Martin Scorsese has called I Know Where I’m Going a perfect film. And it is.
