Friends: Please forward this message to your friends and e-mail lists! The Vermont International Film Festival will be here again October 11-14...one of the remarkable films they're showing is BAMAKO, "putting the World Bank on trial", directed by veteran African filmmaker Abderrahmane Sissako. A heavy topic, very engagingly portrayed. It will be shown twice at the Roxy: 7 pm, Thursday, Oct 11, and 1 pm, Sunday, October. A panel discussion will follow the Sunday screening.
Also, all 12 hours of Roz Payne's DVD of interviews with the Black Panthers (and their FBI investigators) will also be shown!

Melé is a bar singer, her husband Chaka is out of work and the couple is on the verge of breaking up… In the courtyard of the house they share with other families, a trial court has been set up. African civil society spokesmen have taken proceedings against the World Bank and the IMF whom they blame for Africa's woes… Amidst the pleas and the testimonies, life goes on in the courtyard. Chaka does not seem to be concerned by Africa's novel desire to fight for its rights… A lush mix of warm colours and inspirational music. Bamako is a unique opportunity for a worldwide audience to become familiar with contemporary Africa.
