Faat Kiné - film and discussion

Join BloomBars and TransAfrica to celebrate March as Women's History Month.

Film: Faat Kiné
When: March 25,[masked]:00 PM
Donation: $10. Proceeds support both TransAfrica and BloomBars. Free organic popcorn.

Miles of Smiles, Years of Struggle (2001, 120 min), by Ousmane Sembene. Kiné (pronounced KEE-neh) is a single mother with two children, two ex-husbands and an assortment of friends. She is the manager of a sparkling new gas station in Dakar, but her success has been hard-earned in a male dominated society.

In FAAT KINÉ, Ousmane Sembene, the father of African cinema, pays tribute to the "everyday heroism of African women," and provides a critical look at modern, post-colonial Senegal and the place of women in that society. (French and Wolof with English subtitles).

Our screening will be followed by a discussion hosted by Mwiza Munthali, the Public Outreach Director of TransAfrica.

Two (2) parking garages are only a short walk away (*14th St near Target, and *Park Rd at Giant Food) and there’s METRO - The Columbia Heights  Station at 14th St, only 4 blocks away. BloomBars is not a restaurant or bar, so no food is served. It does not have its own parking, so we encourage you to arrive on time and take advantage of the METRO or the parking garages, as described above. Thank you!
