--8:30pm
Smile Orange
Dir. Trevor Rhone, 1976, 86 min.
Smile Orange makes comedy out of an exploitive situation, to quote one film reviewer, "the tourist is funny and crass; the native who serves and exploits him is crass and funny." Carl Bradshaw (The Harder They Come, No Place Like Home) stars as Ringo, hotel worker who has mastered the art of "getting over" - he sleeps with the guests, cons tourists and imparts dark advice to his younger co-worker: "If you're a black man and won't play a part you're going to starve to death." Beneath the humor lies serious commentary on the complex negotiations of black male subjectivity in post-colonial Jamaica.
