Chico and Rita 
By Fernando Trueba 

June 22, 2013 @ 6:00 pm

Oscar®-winning director Fernando Trueba (Belle Epoque) and Spain's most famous designer Javier Mariscal create a passionate, animated love story, nominated for Best Animated Feature at the 2012 Academy Awards. The story revolves around a gifted songwriter and beautiful singer chasing their dreams - and each other - from Havana to New York and Las Vegas. Chico is a young piano player with big dreams. Rita is a beautiful singer with an extraordinary voice. Music and romantic desire unite them, but their journey - in the tradition of the Latin ballad, the bolero - brings heartache and torment. In Spanish with English subtitles. Special Q&A with musicians involved in the film.

Director Philip Niang craftfully weaves the dynamic story of this emblematic and universal hero in a comprehensive, two part drama, keeping you on the edge of your seat. Talkback with special surprise guests.

Kaleb (2012)
By Kervans Barthelemy

June 22, 2013 @ 2:00 pm

An impressive first feature film, KALEB tells the story of a Haitian American family trying to faithfully live the 'American Dream'. Those dreams are quickly shattered, however, when their eldest son is wrongfully accused of an act of violence.  The film skillfully explores the themes of father and son relationships; balancing family values versus peer pressure; and modernity versus tradition. As the filmmaker himself states: "The film is a manifestation of my dreams and a testimonial of my upbringing as a Haitian, seventh day Adventist. The film reminds us of what's most important: Family."

Sing Your Song
By Suzanne Rostock

June 22, 2013 @ 3:45 pm

Sing Your Song is an up close look at a great American, Harry Belafonte. A patriot to the last and a champion for worldwide human rights, Belafonte is one of the truly heroic cultural and political figures of the past 60 years. Told from Mr. Belafonte's point of view,  Sing Your Song takes us on a journey through Harry Belafonte's life, work, and most of all, his conscience, as it inspires us all to action! With a special guest appearance by Mr. Belafonte.

Dear Mandela
By Dara Kell and Christopher Nizza
June 23, 2013 @ 3:00 pm

WBAI/AfroBeat Radio Fundraiser

Destroyed homes, threats at gunpoint and high-court action, this battle by three young people to stand up for their rights is a testimony to people power. When the South African government promises to 'eradicate the slums' and begins to evict shack dwellers far outside the city, three friends who live in Durban's vast shantytowns refuse to be moved. Dear Mandela follows their journey from their shacks to the highest court in the land as they invoke Nelson Mandela's example and become leaders in a growing social movement. By turns inspiring, devastating and funny, the film offers a new perspective on the role that young people can play in political change and is a fascinating portrait of South Africa coming of age.
