Don’t miss the Q&A…
After you register for this screening, be sure to register for the follow-up event, Members-Only Q&A: Farewell Amor, featuring a conversation with writer/director/producer Ekwa Msangi, and actors Ntare Guma Mbaho Mwine, Zainab Jah and Jayme Lawson. (Wednesday, December 9 – 12:00pm PT)
Film Independent Members, you and a guest are invited to watch Farewell Amor in our Film Independent Presents Online Screening Room, powered by Vision Media.
After 17 years in exile, Walter finally reunites with his family after being forced to leave Angola for New York City. We meet the family as Walter is picking up his wife, Esther, and daughter, Sylvia, from the airport to bring them home to his one-bedroom Brooklyn apartment. They quickly discover how the years of separation have turned them into absolute strangers. As they attempt to overcome the personal and political hurdles amongst them, they rely on the muscle memory of dance to find their way back “home.” Farewell Amor is an immigrant story that has come to define the American landscape since its inception.
