Film Screening: Because of the War

Wednesday, November 7, 2018 @ 7:30 pm


In the 2018 documentary film “Because of the War,” four brilliant singers and dancers—mothers, refugees, immigrants, survivors of Liberia’s civil wars—use their art to address injustice at home in West Africa and in exile in North America. The movie affords audiences the chance to explore relationships between traditional cultural knowledge and community well-being, especially in situations of violence and loss, and to consider how each one of us might hold the potential for constructive action, in the face of indignities and inequities, within ourselves. The screening will be followed by a Q&A with movie director Toni Shapiro-Phim and featured artist Fatu Gayflor. This screening is part of a residency celebrating the Liberian Women’s Chorus for Change.

Free; no tickets required.

This film screening has been made possible by the Granoff Music Fund.
