Rude, November 7th 7:30pm at BAM Rose Cinemas

“Passionately acted, with especially gripping performances,”
Stephen Holden, The New York Times

November 7th
at BAM Rose Cinemas
Q&A with Melanie Nicholls-King (Actor) and Damon D’Olivera (Producer), follows

During the 1990’s renaissance of Black cinema, writer/director Clement Virgo’s first feature film “Rude,” made its theatrical debut in 1995, wowing international audiences, and marking a milestone in cinema as the first full length narrative feature film directed by an African-Canadian, and written and produced by an all-Black team.

Digitally restored in 2017, The Caribbean Film Series pays homage to the Jamaican-born, Toronto-raised Virgo, whose subsequent projects, such as “The Book of Negroes,” and his work on the OWN network smash hit “Greenleaf,” continue to transform the wide-ranging ways audiences explore Black life, with a fresh Brooklyn screening of his now classic film.  

Co-presented by the Caribbean Film Academy, BAMcinématek and the Brooklyn Cinema Collective, “Rude” screens at BAM Rose Cinemas on Wednesday, November 7th at 7:30pm, and will be preceded by Guyanese filmmaker Gavin Mendonca’s, short music-based film, “How To Build a Treehouse.”
