Sembène Film Festival: (T)ERROR (U.S.)Thursday, April 20, 2017 @ 7 p.m.
Join us for a screening of (T)ERROR (U.S.), presented in partnership with Sembène – The Film & Art Festival and City of Asylum.
(T)ERROR is the first film to infiltrate a covert counterterrorism sting, with filmmakers documenting the action in real time as it unfolds on the ground. Viewers get an unfettered glimpse of the government’s counterterrorism tactics and the murky justifications behind them through the perspective of a 63-year-old Black revolutionary turned FBI informant.
Sembène – The Film & Art Festival – is a group of scholars, activists and film aficionados. Our mission is to celebrate the life, showcase the work and honor the legacy of African Filmmaker Ousmane Sembene, through film and other complementary cultural events.
The Festival serves both as a vehicle and catalyst: to honor the life, work and legacy of Ousmane Sembene and to showcase film makers and other art/cultural events that speak, unflinchingly, to the important issues facing the modern African Diaspora.
