"Nora" (Harlem Library Cinema Series)

Share

November 10, 2010

Program Locations:

George Bruce Library, Auditorium
National Black Programming Consortium

 

Produced by Alla Kovgan, David Hinton & Nora Chipaumire

Based on true stories of dancer Nora Chipaumire( born in Zimbabwe in 1965). Using performance and dance, her history comes to life in swiftly-moving poetry of sound and image. Nora returns to her childhood landscape, a journey through vivid memories of family dramas, difficult love affiars and militant politics which moves back and forth between the comic and the tragic, the joyful and the mournful.

A film about a girl who struggles against intimidation and violence but slowly gathers strength, pride and independence. Shot entirely on location in Southern Africa, "Nora" includes a multitude of local performers of all ages with a specially composed legend of Zimbabwean music.
