Rescheduled from last week…when we had such epic tech issues that we didn’t get to screen the films or have the conversation….thank you to everyone who came through and was patient and gracious with us….we’ve been trying to figure out how to try this again and we’ve figured it out….Please come join us tomorrow evening at Prestige Plaza from 5 pm. The screening will start at exactly 5:30 pm…it’s going to be fantastic and I’d love it if you came and shared with others who’d appreciate the conversation we’re trying to have….Come, please!
Tega Okiti will be sharing with us a selection of some of the boldest and brightest cinema and visual art from Africa and the Black Diaspora. With films, documentary, animation and music video from Kenya, Nigeria, South Africa, the United Kingdom and Jamaica ‘Scratching the Surface’ opens the door to a wealth of narratives, intersecting experiences, and artistic interventions. What are the components driving the culture created by and about Black Africans forward? What connects and divides the narratives of these distinct cultures? From the pop of Afrobubblegum, blooming millennial sisterhood, and maverick Nigerian Art House collectives, join our expert panel and us as we do what we can dive under the surface of the arts today.
