Sembène Film Festival: Panomundo (Trinidad & Tobago)Monday, July 16, 2018 @ 7 p.m. - 8 p.m.
(1 hr. approximate run time)
Join us for a screening of Panomundo presented by Sembène–The Film & Art Festival.
The first of a series, Panomundo Part 1: The Evolution of the Steelpan is a look at the history of the steelpan (steel drum) from its inception in Trinidad & Tobago, its gaining of international recognition at the Festival of Britain in 1951 and the impact of steelpan around the world today.
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.
