AT THE SCREENING ROOM
Two films that address the ongoing struggle for justice for all. “The Sun Rises in the East” tells the little-known story of The East, an ambitious pan-African cultural collective established in Brooklyn in 1969. “Digging for Life” follows the incredible true story of a Cameroonian man who set out to seek better prospects, only to find himself enslaved in the modern world.
Digging For Life When a young Cameroonian man attempts to pursue the dream of a better life in post-apartheid South Africa, he finds himself trapped as a slave in Angola.
The Sun Rises in the East This powerful film chronicles the birth, rise and legacy of The East, a pan-African cultural organization founded in 1969 by teens and young adults in Brooklyn.
