Calypso Dreams Screening presented by SCFF & JouvayFest Collective
Sunday, January 17 from 7:00 to 9:00 pm
This screening is an opportunity to celebrate the uniqueness and unify the African Diaspora, aiming to educate and celebrate the heirloom tradition of Resistance and Resilience. JouvayFest Collective and Sabira Cole Film Festival have joined forces to bring together a special screening of Calypso Dreams, followed by a live panel discussion and audience Q&A with the film’s co-producer and collaborators. Calypso Dreams is a remarkably engaging film that captures the triumphant human spirit and dynamic musical genius of venerable Calypso singers from the Caribbean island country of Trinidad and Tobago.
