Women’s History Month Screening at NeueHouse

Thursday, March 17, 2016, 6:45 pm - 9:15 pm

NeueHouse_AfricanFilmFestival Women's History Month Celebration

Thursday, March 17th 6:45 PM-9:15PM

Join NeueHouse and African Film Festival, Inc. for a celebration of Women’s History Month with director Ekwa Msangi and dancer-choreographer nora chipaumire.

In the quest to give an authentic voice to women in their personal search for identity, Msangi and chipaumire have both 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 comedia 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. For admission, RSVPs must be sent to RSVPNY@NeueHouse.com.
