Join us for a screening of award-winning screenwriter and director Kiel Adrian Scott’s, new short film “Samaria”. The film explores themes of identity and representation as we examine the intersection of jazz and film.
Samaria is the story of Rosary, a young woman, in desperate need of kindness, torn between the worlds of the haves and the have-nots. Following a devastating natural disaster, Rosary, a now homeless white-collar worker, must hide her indigence from those she works for and her employment from those she lives with, withholding who and what she is to survive
The screening will be followed by a discussion between Christian Scott aTunde Adjuah, who composed the music for the film, and pianist and composer Samora Abayomi Pinderhughes. The discussion will be moderated by producer and director, Lisa Cortés.
