DINNER & A MOVIE - FEBRUARY 20, 2010
The Color of Film & Haley House Bakery Cafe
invite you to

a Post Valentine's Day DINNER & A MOVIE screening event
on Saturday, FEBRUARY 20, 2010  celebrating the many ways to say "LOVE"

featuring a three-course, mid-winter Latin feast followed by three short independent films demonstrating variations of love and giving:

CHILES  produced by Tyrone Huff
The dinner table is set as Randal, a young Black man, attempts
to impress his future, Mexican in-laws. Add in a side of language barriers, a helping of cultural differences, a bowl of
Chiles and this table heats up into what turns out to be one fun, comedic and heartwarming take on that ever-dreaded
'meeting of the parents.'     (15 minutes)

JUMP THE BROOM
produced by Kena Tangi Dorsey  

Ayanna, a 29 year old fun loving woman, is finally settling down and getting married today.  She has chosen Sean, the all around perfectly, geeky - handsome man to do it with.  When Ayana goes to the church to get ready, her tall, dark, five o'clock shadow wearing ex-flame Shamar, pays her a visit.  (30 minutes)

SANTA CLAUS IN BAGHDAD
produced by Raouf Zaki

In impoverished Baghdad under Saddam's dictatorship, 16-year-old Amal hopes to regain her social status at school by volunteering to find a book as a class gift for the departing literature teacher.  Meanwhile her emotionally fragile little brother becomes obsessed with the notion that a visiting uncle from America--whom he confuses with
Santa Claus--will bring him toys.  Ashamed to have never been able to give his son a toy, the children's father sells some more prized family
possessions and buys a little car for his son.  Amal finds the perfect book
in the street market and presents it to the astonished but immensely pleased teacher.  Only then does she realize the irony and sacrifices that link the two gifts.


The Latin feast includes:
~ Ensalada mixto:  mixed romaine salad, cucumbers and fresh herbs, tossed in a lemon vinaigrette

~ Pasta Latina Primavera:  penne pasta with chicken sausage tossed in a zesty sofrito sauce with fresh carrots, mushrooms, broccoli and green and red bell peppers topped with parmesan (vegan option: no chicken sausage).
 
and for Dessert:
~ Flan de leche:  custard topped with whipped cream
(vegan option: ensalada de frutas - mixed fruit salad)

Doors open at 5:30pm.  Open seating.

Film 7 - 8pm
Discussion 8 - 8:30pm led by Nina LaNegra of The Roxbury Media Institute
