Screening of TOUSSAINT LOUVERTURE Film!

TOUSSAINT LOUVERTURE

This long-awaited, action-packed historical epic (presented in two 90-min segments with an intermission) depicts the life of the titular Haitian freedom fighter, portrayed by celebrated Haitian actor Jimmy Jean-Louis. Louverture led the first successful slave revolt in world history, defeating the colonial regime of Napoleon Bonaparte and winning independence from France. Known for his military genius and political acumen, Louverture established Haiti as the first black nation in the western hemisphere and…rocked the institution of slavery throughout the “New World” of the Americas. (Courtesy of African Diaspora International Film Festival.) Best Narrative Feature, Audience Award and Best Actor (Jean-Louis), 2012 Pan African Film Festival.

DIR/SCR Philippe Niang; SCR Sandro Agenor, Alain Foix; PROD Jean-Louis Monthieux, France Zobda. France/Haiti, 2012, color, 195 min including one 15 min intermission. In French and Haitian Creole with English subtitles. NOT RATED

Well that description speaks for itself. Let's meet to see this film, and catch dinner after. Hope to see you there!

    Hi guys Saturday's movie was good. However I won't be available to attend Sunday as well. But I'm gratified to see the interest. I suggest members meet in the lobby before handing off your tickets at the prescribed time. There was a table there, which is a good place to congregate. Just ask around for fellow meetup members. Maybe decide to head to Panera during the 15 minute intermission for a quick drink and snack. Have a great event and will see you gals and guys at the next one.
