Join CPR on Saturday, March 16 at the AMC 42nd Street Theatre in Times Square, Manhattan when we have the honor of hosting the opening night screening of Better Mus’ Come, the epic Jamaican love story written and directed by Jamaican filmmaker Storm Saulter. In January, African-American Film Festival Releasing Movement (AFFRM) announced the launch of its new label, ARRAY, dedicated to multi-platform distribution of black independent film and its choice of Better Mus’ Come for its first acquisition. Writer/director Storm Saulter will be on hand for the screening and a brief Q&A so join us for what promises to be a great evening.
The 2013 season of CPR’s Community Conversation Series, our 5th season of community forums got off to a great start on February 28th when our studio was filled to capacity for the State of Reggae Music Reception, with patrons eager to celebrate Clement Dodd and to hear from our panelists who did not disappoint. The feedback from the on line audience, where many gathered in groups and discussed the state of the music long after the forum was over, was also positive. The series continues on the last Thursday of each month through June.
For those who missed the launch, the good news is that the recording of the event will be available in the CPRLive archive as of Wednesday, March 6. That’s right, the CPRLive archive is back and this time, it’s on the CPR website. You will find the CPRLive Archive in the ‘Program’ drop-down menu on the homepage. Please send us your feed back.
