RED SALMON ARTS presents… ¡CINE RESISTENCIA!
Featuring EYES OF THE RAINBOW
Directed by Gloria Rolando
“Eyes of the Rainbow” deals with the life of Assata Shakur, the Black Panther and Black Liberation Army leader who escaped from prison and was given political asylum in Cuba, where she has lived for close to 15 years. In it we visit with Assata in Havana as she tells us about her history and her life in Cuba. This film is also about Assata’s AfroCuban context, including the Yoruba Orisha Oya, goddess of the ancestors, of war, of the cemetery and of the rainbow.
This event is a FREE community screening!
– Snacks provided
– Donations welcome
– Film starts at 7:00pm
This project is supported in part by the Cultural Arts Division of the City of Austin Economic Development Department.
