WOMEN INDIES NIGHT Thu. Dec. 8 @ 8:30pm - Schomburg
A LOT LIKE YOU Seattle based Filmmaker Eli Kimaro is the daughter of a Tanzanian father and a Korean mother. When her father retires in Tanzania to re-establish ties to his native Chagga tribe, Kimaro, who felt she never developed a strong kinship with the African side of her family, decides to follow him and document his life journey. There, she discovers powerful stories of community, and shocking stories of violence against women, that she artfully weaves into her own life story as an abuse survivor, anti-violence advocate, and mother to a young daughter. As the story unfolds, Eli's Tanzanian father and Korean mother serve as colorful, humorous cultural liaisons to her past.
