Double Feature! Director Euzhan Palcy In Person! Q&A Moderated by SELMA Director Ava DuVernay!
SELMA (and maybe soon-to-be-Marvel) director Ava DuVernay will sit down with director Euzhan Palcy for a discussion about her career, on the occasion of the 25th anniversary of A DRY WHITE SEASON, in which she directed Marlon Brando in an Oscar-nominated performance. The evening concludes with the world premiere of a new restoration of charming music-based fantasy SIMÉON, which is set in the Caribbean. Ms. Palcy is the first black, female filmmaker to make a movie at a major studio, as well as the first black woman to win the French Oscar equivalent, the Cesar Award. A complimentary JM and Clement rum reception precedes the double bill.
