The Filmmakers Series and TRANSART present Sankofa with Director Haile Gerima

June 8 @ 7:00 pm - 9:30 pm

$6 – $10

“1st Annual Pinkster Joy is an Act of Resistance” Celebration Screening of 1993 Classic Film.

Sankofa is a historically inspired dramatic tale of African resistance to slavery. A self-absorbed Black American fashion model on a photoshoot in Africa is spiritually transported back to a plantation in the West Indies where she experiences first-hand the physical and psychic horrors of chattel slavery, and eventually the redemptive power of community and rebellion as she becomes a member of a freedom-seeking Maroon colony.
