This group is for adults who love seeing films and want to share the experience with others - whether it be as a form of entertainment, information or social perspective. We'll plan to see films in various genres (including foreign, independent, documentary and mainstream) and whenever possible build in the time to discuss them afterward to gain new perspectives while sharing our own. So please join us for films that will cause us to smile, laugh, cry, shudder, be amazed and feel inspired!

FILM: WAKALIWOOD’S BAD BLACK!
ICFS Cinema Other presents
Wakaliwood’s BAD BLACK
with producer Alan Hofmanis in person, and director Isaac Nabwana via Skype!
Wakaliwood returns to Schenectady! In 2016 the question on everyone’s lips was WHO KILLED CAPTAIN ALEX? Mistaking our “General Electric” for a ruthless military commander, Uganda’s TIGER MAFIA invaded Proctors in February of that year in a desperate effort to uncover the truth! This year, after a premiere launch at the MUSEUM OF MODERN ART, the Wakaliwood advance team will return to Schenectady with their latest action-comedy, BAD BLACK! In this already legendary cinematic follow-up (the film won the coveted Audience Award at Austin’s world famous Fantastic Fest), a kickass young heroine sets out to right the wrongs of savage gangland child slavery and murder!
Yes! Welcome to Wakaliwood, Uganda: “HOME OF DA BEST OF DA BEST MOVIES!” Under the direction of writer-director-inventor Nabwana IGG, a team of self-taught filmmakers, performers and martial arts aficionados have been busily producing dozens of action films in the Kampala ghetto of Wakaliga using sticks, mud and scrap metal to build computers, movie-prop machine guns and pretty much everything else… including a full-scale Huey helicopter! Still, with budgets rarely more than $200 USD, they – until very recently – had to erase each of their films almost immediately following completion in order to begin recording their next! They simply never imagined anyone outside their surrounding villages would take an interest in seeing their work.
