St. John Film Society Free Movie Night Presents 'Africa Unite'/Date and Venue Changed

Jan. 31, 2009 - St. John Film Society has changed the date and venue for its Free Movie Night. It will now be shown at 7 p.m., on Tuesday, Feb. 10, at Sputnik's Bar in Coral Bay, St. John. This month's feature film presentation is "Africa Unite," a documentary with concert in tribute to Bob Marley, directed by Stephanie Black. (89 minutes, 2008 release).
For more information, contact Rea at 715-9899
or e-mail: stjviff@gmail.com
On the occasion of Africa Unite in 2005, Marley's family visited Ethiopia to present a live musical tribute to honor the reggae legend on what would have been his 60th birthday. Along with clips of Africa Unite symposiums, the film focuses on the roots of Rastafarianism and the significance of Marley's life to its movement. The film includes performances by his widow, Rita, and sons, Ziggy, Stephen, Julian, Damian and Ky-Mani, along with a few vintage clips of Marley himself.
A short video will be presented by local artist Bill Stelzer prior to the documentary. Stelzer will present a short video compilation created for the Waveplace Project, a partnering effort with the One Laptop Per Child Foundation. The foundation brought children's laptops to students in Haiti, Nicaragua, Florida and St. John. The video features the children as they learned digital art, programming and storytelling skills over the course of this extraordinary adventure.
William Stelzer, a St. John resident, was graphics director for the ABC-TV affiliate in Austin, Texas, during the First Gulf War and has worked as an independent consultant on a wide variety of art, film, video, print, web, education and computer graphic projects.
The St. John Film Society's mission is to inspire a positive appreciation for the history, culture and environment of the U.S. Virgin Islands by establishing a free monthly film series open to and for the benefit of the local community. The society will present high quality fiction and non-fiction independent films that celebrate the human spirit and focus on the Caribbean, with the intent of increasing cross-cultural awareness of the many communities throughout the V.I. and beyond.
Each month, the society will invite a local V.I. filmmaker, video installation artist or visual artist to present his or her work prior to the feature film presentation. The goal is to develop public awareness of local talent by creating an environment in which filmmakers and artists can introduce and discuss their work and their artistic process with audiences of all ages.
St. John Film Society, which is comprised of a small group of local volunteers, invites film enthusiasts to come and enjoy the films and help plan monthly programs. It also invites filmmakers/artists to submit their work for consideration. E-mail suggestions to stjviff@gmail.com or submit preview DVDs to:
