SUNDAY, MARCH 2 @ 4:30PM - SANKOFA
A stunning film with great reserves of emotional power and intelligence, Sankofa tells the story of Mona, a beautiful African-American model on a fashion shoot in West Africa who becomes enmeshed with a mystical spot that forces her to recall her racial past. Unlike other films depicting slavery, Sankofa actually brings audiences through the social, political and religious changes needed to support a slave culture as well as destroy it. Because of its bold realities and firm depiction of slavery from the eyes of the oppressed, the film has constantly been under attack.
