Op-Docs, The New York Times Opinion section's award-winning series of short documentaries, returns to the Sundance Film Festival for the world premiere of its 300th film, “Traveling While Black.” The virtual reality film, made in collaboration with Felix & Paul Studios and Oculus, immerses viewers in African Americans’ struggles to travel freely around the United States. The film’s director, Roger Ross Williams, will be in conversation with Times journalist Brent Staples about the history and current reality of traveling while black.
