LSP Pick!: Restless City/Slave to the Rhythm (11.23)

Our partner in culture Adrian Loving provides two hot picks for your Saturday enjoyment. Check it out:

Saturday, November 23rd
National Gallery of Art
East Building Large Auditorium
National Mall- Between 3rd & 9th Streets, NW Along Constitution Avenue

Check out this screening of Restless City, followed by excerpts from Mother of George which will be followed by discussion with the films’ director Andrew Dosunmu and Adrian Loving

About Restless City: Senegalese musician Djibril (Sy Alassane), recently arrived in America, negotiates his way around Harlem taking odd jobs and gigs. When he rescues Trini (Sky Grey) from the clutches of gangster Bekay (Tony Okungbowa), the young woman falls for him. “On a formal level, Restless City is an expressive and deeply felt collection of sequences structured around the theme of the isolation of a population of immigrants in New York City. Dosunmu has an eye for compositions that evoke the simultaneous splendor and loneliness of life in a bustling community. A scene of young, mostly Senegalese immigrants dancing in a crowded New York club is conveyed in an exquisitely succinct collection of shots that revel in the intoxication of fleeting release” — Chuck Bowen. (Andrew Dosunmu, 2011, HDCam, 80 minutes)

Mother of George is Dosunmu’s new feature on the immigrant community. He will discuss this work and show excerpts. The film is now in theaters.
