Welcome to Queens NY Tango Macbeth!

We had a lovely time at the Museum of the Moving Image on Friday August 15th 2014. The weather was perfect. The audience was divine. The location of the museum is in Astoria Queens right next to Kaufman Film Studios. Thanks to Warrington Hudlin for inviting us to be a part of his Changing the Picture series. Here are photos from the event by Joanie Cordova aka @ForCommunities. You can follow her on Twitter and Tumblr at that address. Our event coincided with a screening of work by Hong Kong film legends  Patrick Lung Kong  and  Tsui Hark, “The Story of a Discharged Prisoner”. Thanks to Tim Wynn for moderating an exciting Q&A; Mike Dennis of ReelBlack for documenting the Q&A; and Mike Hodge, President of New York’s SAG-AFTRA for bringing his colleagues to the event. And thanks to producer Marlene Patterson for making Tango Macbeth possible!

Tango Macbeth Premieres in Queens at Museum of the Moving Image Friday August 15th 7pm

Screening & Live Event
Tango Macbeth

 

With director Nadine Patterson in person

Part of the series Changing the Picture, sponsored by Time Warner, Inc.

Dir. Nadine Patterson. 2012, 74 mins. Digital projection. With Alexandra Bailey, Brian Anthony Wilson. In this multicultural and experimental Macbeth, a theater company rehearses the play while a documentary crew follows them. This blend of world music, contemporary dance, humor, and cinema verite is a refreshing take on the classic tragedy, and the first film adaptation of Shakespeare directed by an African-American woman.

Tickets for Friday evening screenings: $12 ($9 for senior citizens and students / free for Museum members) and includes admission to the Museum’s galleries, which are open until 8:00 p.m. For more information on membership and to join online, visit our membership page.

The Sembene Film & Arts Festival formed in 2009 to celebrate the life and honor the legacy of Senegalese filmmaker Ousmane Sembène.  Ousmane Sembène is considered the ‘Father of African Cinema’ and one of the most important filmmakers of the 20th century.  Sembène – the Film & Arts Festival is the first film festival ever launched in honor of the Ousmane Sembène and it’s the first film festival in the region dedicated to showcasing films by, about and from the African Diaspora.

Festival organizers see the festival as a vehicle to speak to the critical issues facing people of African descent – indeed, the world community.  Check out the February line-up. Visit: http://www.sembenefilmfestival.org/

I look forward to meeting you all at Southside Works Cinema! Tuesday 7pm February 18th— Cheers, Nadine Patterson, writer/director TANGO MACBETH
