Thursday, March 17th 6:45 PM-9:15PM
Join NeueHouse and African Film Festival, Inc. for a celebration of Women’s History Month with directors Ekwa Msangi (Soko Sonko) and Alla Kovgan (Nora), and dancer-choreographer nora chipaumire.
In the quest to give an authentic voice to women in their personal search for identity, Msangi, Kovgan and chipaumire have crafted works which pay homage to female individuality and the collective family structure, whilst challenging the old belief systems of a woman’s role.
A screening of Msangi’s Soko Sonko — a comedic tale about the father-daughter bond and gender-role reversals– and Nora, an elegant dance biopic based on chipaumire’s childhood in Zimbabwe, will be followed by a discussion with the artists.
This is a free, private screening. RSVP is required. RSVPs must be sent to RSVPNY@NeueHouse.com.
