On May 1, 2017, in anticipation of Dr. Angela Davis’ visit to Winnipeg on May 6, 2017, Black Space Winnipeg and Winnipeg Film Group’s Cinematheque are pleased to present a cinematic tribute to Angela Davis. Free Angela and all Political Prisoners, written and directed by Shola Lynch is a gripping historic account of the events that catapulted a young University of California philosophy professor into a controversial political icon in the turbulent late 1960s.
We encourage the public to come and engage with an important film that not only challenges the direct blatant racism within American society, but recounts the experiences of an important icon and in Dr. Cornell West's words «one of the few great long-distance intellectual freedom fighters in the world.»
There will be a double screening at 6 pm and 9 pm with a panel discussion taking place in PLATFORM centre for photographic + digital arts at 8 pm. We look forward to sharing an educational and enlightening evening with you.
