SATURDAY, JUNE 14 @ 6:15pm Tula the Revolt Chicago Premiere
TULA THE REVOLT
Starring Danny Glover, Tula, The Revolt is an international English spoken feature length movie about the leader of the big slave uprising on the island of Curacao, a Dutch colony in 1795. It tells the true story of a man who dared to stand up against his oppressors leading his people in a peaceful march for freedom, equality and brotherhood. Although several movies on the broader subject of slavery have been made, there was never a movie on the essence of slave resistance. The revolt on Curacao began peacefully and was meant to be won by words, rather than arms. This makes this true story unique in its kind. Directed by Jeroen Leinders, 2013, 100 min, Netherlands/ Curacao, Drama, English.
Program sponsored by the Curacao Tourism Corporation
