About the movie:

-Directed by in 1993 Ethiopian filmmaker Haile Gerima

-Synopsis: Mona, a contemporary African American model is on a shoot at the infamous slave forts in Ghana, West Africa. Spirits lingering in the dungeons that were used to detain enslaved Africans over a century earlier possess her. She becomes Shola, “house slave” on a sugar plantation; she is in love with Shango, a rebellious field slave and she idolizes Nunu, her surrogate mother. Shola too, learns rebellion when the master advances on her one too many times. After her trials, Shola returns to the present as Mona, deeply aware of her African roots.

Screening sponsor: Sankofa Spirit Movies with a Mission are free films about Africa and the African Diaspora that seek to inform and inspire dialogue. Discussion will follow screening. More info visit www.sankofaspirit.com.

    Final reminder: This event has reached capacity. PLEASE PLEASE PLEASE remember to print out your ticket from EventBrite and bring it with you to the event. Those with tickets will be seated first. Once the seats are gone, it is standing room only. At the screening 2 weeks ago, people were turned away because room capacity had been reached.

    I did make the effort to communicate with the screening organizer. However, due the overwhelming response to this screening, seating is first come first serve. Doors open at 11:30a. if we all arrive between 11:30a and 11:45a, we'll have a better chance of sitting together.

    Last but not least, if you do have an extra unused ticket and are coming to the event, please bring it with you. There are a few ladies who have expressed an interest in the screening who were unable to RSVP who would appreciate your extra ticket. I'd be happy to pass your ticket along.

    See you at the screening!
