Black Roots Cinema Club of the New Orléans Afrikan Film and Arts Festival
presents
Lovinsa Kavuma & Louise Hogarth
At The Prytania
Thursday September 4, 7pm




Dear Friend,

Due to the impending hurricane and disruption of everyday life next week, we are postponing the screenings of Lovinsa Kavuma's Kintu and Rape for Who I Am and Louise Hogarth's Angels in the Dust.

Rather than September 4, we plan to host the filmmakers and screen these wonderful films on October 2 (The Prytania) and 3 (The Porch/7th Ward Neighborhood Center).

We will confirm the dates and hope to see you at The Prytania, 7pm, October 2.

We hope that the City and you and your families will be safe through the next days.

Joseph Gaye Ramaka
Festival Director
