Join us for screenings of Sankofa (1993), Spit (2014), and Rock Rubber 45s (2018)!

Sankofa (1993)
While in West Africa, a young model named Mona (Oyafunmike Ogunlano) encounters an old mystic and gets transported into the past where she is enslaved on a plantation. Recently restored, this is the 25th anniversary screening of Sankofa, a highly lauded and moving film. Post Screening Conversation with Haile Gerima, Shirikiana Gerima, and Mia Mask.

Spit (2014)
Jeremiah “Monk-One” Sinclair, an under-ground New York hip-hop artist, reaches the end of his career. Sinclair feels it causes him more pain to practice and “starve” for his art, than to persevere in the shifting hip-hop landscape of 21st century.

Rock Rubber 45s (2018)
A cinematic odyssey exploring the connectivity of global basketball, sneaker, and music lifestyle through the firsthand lens of authentic New York City cultural ambassador Bobbito García. The film explores García’s youth dealing with his identity, mistreatment, educational quandaries, and loss, as well as his ascension to self-determination through creativity.
Post Screening Conversation with Mtume Gant and Bobbito García.
