Tu 04/24: BloomScreen & AWNP present: Winnie

Tuesday, April 24th at 7:00 pm

In commemoration of South Africa Freedom Day (April 27), and in remembrance of Winnie Madikizela-Mandela, BloomScreen and the Africa World Now Project present: “Winnie.”

Winnie (2017, 98 min), by Pascale Lamche – this insightful documentary pieces together and properly considers Winnie Mandela’s life and struggle to bring down apartheid from the inside, with intimate insight from those who were closest to her and Winnie Mandela herself; and with testimony from the enemies who sought to extinguish her radical capacity to shake up the order of things. This film is about the real Winnie. {Winner – Directing Award, World Cinema Documentary at the 2017 Sundance Film Festival).

The screening will be followed by a Q&A discussion hosted by Mwiza Munthali, host of the radio show “Africa Now,” on WPFW 89.3FM.

*Suggested Donation: $10. Proceeds support both the Africa World Now Project and BloomBars. Free organic popcorn.
