Continuing our partnership with The Cinemas, the NAGB will present the Bahamian film “The Black Moses" directed by The Cinemas founder, Travolta Cooper.
“The Black Moses,” the documentary which follows the life, career and legacy of Sir Lynden Pindling, the first Black Prime Minister of The Bahamas. Pindling, is considered by many to be the father of The Bahamas, after leading the island nation to independence in 1973. He served as PM from 1969 to 1992, resigned as leader of the Progressive Liberal Party (PLP) in 1997, and died in 2000. The film is narrated by Dennis Haysbert and features interviews and commentary from former Canadian PM Brian Mulroney, Dr Myles Munroe, Jesse Jackson, Sidney Poitier and Thabo Mbeki (for Nelson Mandela), among others.
“The Black Moses” is directed by Bahamian filmmaker Travolta Cooper, and is opening the 2019 season of the NAGB Film Series in honour and celebration of last week’s Majority Rule.
This and all screenings are free and open to the public. We will have popcorn on hand for sale. Come out with your blanket and spend this comfy winter night with us.
