Sembène Film Festival: But Then, She's Betty Carter (U.S.)

Jun 25, 2018 - Jun 25, 2018 | 7:00 pm - 8:30 pm
City of Asylum
40 W. North Ave
Pittsburgh, Pa 15212

Join us for a screening of But Then, She’s Betty Carter presented by Sembène – The Film & Art Festival.

This lively film is an unforgettable portrait of legendary vocalist Betty Carter, one of the greatest living exponents of jazz. Uncompromised by commercialism throughout her long career, she has forged alternative criteria for success — including founding her own recording company and raising her two sons as a single parent. Parkerson’s special film captures Carter’s musical genius, her paradoxical relationship with the public and her fierce dedication to personal and artistic independence.

 

Sembène – The Film & Art Festival – is a group of scholars, activists and film aficionados. Our mission is to celebrate the life, showcase the work and honor the legacy of African Filmmaker Ousmane Sembene, through film and other complementary cultural events.

The Festival serves both as a vehicle and catalyst: to honor the life, work and legacy of Ousmane Sembene and to showcase film makers and other art/cultural events that speak, unflinchingly, to the important issues facing the modern African Diaspora
