Black Mystery Month begins today! And by Kindly Kosmic Koincidence, friends & I are throwing an event in Brooklyn: AFRO-SPECTACLE. Come join us, *tonight*, Wednesday February 1st for:
On Wednesday February 1st, at 7pm, DJ Rupture and Lamin Fofana will host a special 2-hour live radio show from south Williambsburgâ€™s Spectacle Theater, with guests Chief Boima and Old Money.
Following the live WFMU broadcast â€” built entirely from African music videos purchased in the cornerstores of NYC â€” we will screen Godâ€™s Own Country by director Femi Agbayewa. GOC presents the story of a young Nigeria lawyer who immigrates to NYC to discover that life in America is not like he hopedâ€¦ As Boima explains, â€œItâ€™s firmly in the Nollywood tradition. The story line is a New York story, and I think itâ€™s the perfect context for the non-Nollywood initiated to get introduced to the industry. . . it is also referencing the tradition of the American hood gangster flick like Belly. Almost an amalgamation of the two.â€
Palm wine and kola nuts are included with the $5 admission. Space is limited, so come early!
