Harry Belafonte to premiere film locally at Walker Art Center
|Sing Your Song|
The movie revisits moments in Belafonte's career, from playing clubs in New York City to starring in Hollywood films to his work with Civil Rights, which includes standing with Martin Luther King Jr., speaking out against South African apartheid, and promoting hip hop in Cuba.
The film will screen at the Walker Thursday, March 15. Following the movie Scott Foundas, associate director of the Film Society of Lincoln Center, will lead a discussion with Belafonte. Audience members will be invited to ask questions as well. The museum will screen several of his flicks in the weeks leading up to the event, including Carmen Jones, Odds Against Tomorrow, and Kansas City.
Past filmmakers featured in the Regis series have included Milos Forman and the Coen brothers. For more information on the event, or to reserve tickets, visit www.walkerart.org.
