Diaspora Festival of Black and Independent Film Screening: “Njinga, Queen of Angola”

November 10, 2015 @ 7:00 am - 9:00 pm

Free

The Stone Center presents free public screenings of recent movies at 7 p.m. as part of the Diaspora Film Festival. In seventeenth-century Angola, a woman leads her kingdom in a 40-year struggle for freedom and independence. Her name is Njinga. She will be known as Queen Njinga. Born into a patriarchal society, Njinga defied tradition to become queen at the age of 50 with the aim of ensuring her people were kept safe from the Portuguese slave traders. A true story of unrivalled determination, Njinga stands today as a symbol of resistance, fully embodying the motto: “those who fight, fight to win.”

Dir: Sergio Graciano /Feature/Angola/ Portuguese with English subtitles /109 min./2013

This event is FREE and Open to the Public.
