In the new reboot of 1960s western action film The Magnificent Seven, Ethan Hawke plays one of seven rifle-wielding mercenaries hired by the people of a small town under siege by a ruthless industrialist. The film is directed by Antoine Fuqua (Training Day), and also stars Denzel Washington, Byung-hun Lee and Manuel Garcia-Rulfo as fellow outlaws. It's not often that you see such a racially diverse cast in a western, or any Hollywood film for that matter. Hawke is also author of a new graphic novel, "Indeh: A Story of the Apache Wars," which he will be discussing with co-creator Greg Ruth, at the New York Comic Con in October. Hawke joins us tonight in The Greene Space as Rebecca Carroll, WNYC's producer for special projects on race, launches a new conversation series reinventing language around race, How I Got Over. They'll talk race, guns, violence and white accountability in an era of heightened, racialized police brutality and gun violence.See more cheap New York City events & things to do on Nifty NYC.
