TOMORROW:Diaspora Festival of Black and Independent Film

FREE AND OPEN TO THE PUBLIC: The Stone Center‘s Diaspora Festival of Black and Independent Film comes to a close TOMORROW (11/16), with a viewing of “The Importance of Being Elegant” (2004) at 7:00 p.m in the Hitchcock Multipurpose Room.

“This documentary follows the unusual club, La SAPE. Its Congolese members elevate fashion to religion. Despite hardship, they only wear ultra-premium labels. The film follows their leader, musician Papa Wemba, who was released on bail after allegedly smuggling illegal immigrants. Facing legal fees and a trial, he records a new album and prepares for an extravagant come-back concert in Paris.”

This film is 70 minutes long and was directed by George Amponsah and Cosima Spender.  For more information, please contact: stonecenter@unc.edu or (919) 962-9001.
