Directed by Haile Gerima | 1993

With Kofi Ghanaba, Oyafunmike Ogunlano, Alexandra Duah

Haile Gerima’s blistering parable tells the story of a self-absorbed African-American fashion model who, while on a photo shoot in Ghana, is spiritually transported to a plantation in the antebellum South. Here, she experiences the horrors of slavery—and ultimately, the redemptive power of community and rebellion. Sankofa is a beautiful and disturbing Afrocentric interrogation of the past through a contemporary lens.

Screening with Wangechi Mutu's Nguva (2013) at 5pm only.
