Sembène Film Festival: Nothing But The Truth (South Africa)Monday, August 27, 2018 @ 7 p.m. - 9 p.m.
Join us for a screening of Nothing But The Truth presented by Sembène–The Film & Art Festival.
Nothing But The Truth is a gripping investigation into the complex dynamic between those blacks who remained in South Africa and risked their lives to lead the struggle against apartheid and those who returned victoriously after living in exile. In New Brighton, South Africa, 63-year-old librarian Sipho Makhaya prepares for the return of the ashes of his brother Themba, recently deceased while in exile in London after gaining a reputation as a hero of the anti-apartheid movement.
Internationally recognized, multiple award-winning actor, writer and director John Kani is the lead actor in this film version of the internationally acclaimed award-winning play Nothing But The Truth which he also authored.
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.
