In a special edition of CaFA Cinema Nights, this June, we will be hosting our first outdoor screening this Wednesday, June 28, 7:00PM, at Brower Park, in Brooklyn. ¬†We will be screening, “JOEBELL & AMERICA,” by Asha Lovelace.

The screening is FREE and open to the public.

Based on the short story by her father, famed Caribbean novelist and playwright Earl Lovelace, the film tells the story of Joebell, a gambler, who concocts a risky plan to escape Trinidad for the promise and fantasy of a better future in America. Prepared to leave everything behind, including his newfound romance with the village beauty, Joebell sets out for his final destination, with each step of his journey revealing truths about himself and illuminating the island he had always taken for granted.

The film is being brought to you in collaboration with Curtis John, and UnionDocs, with the support of the Brooklyn Arts Council.
