Join Jada Pinkett-Smith as she kicks off this year’s festival with a red carpet Florida premiere presentation of her documentary film “Free Angela Davis and All Political Prisoners”. It will be the only opportunity to see the film in a Florida theater as this film will only be playing in seven other select cities nationwide. This opening night screening with Jada Pinkett Smith is a rare treat!
Free Angela tells the dramatic story of how a young professor’s social justice activism implicates her in a botched kidnapping attempt that ends with a bloody shootout, four dead, and her name on the FBI’s 10 most-wanted list. In this historical vérité style documentary, marking the 40th anniversary of her acquittal on charges of murder, kidnapping, and conspiracy, Angela Davis recounts the politics and actions that branded her a terrorist and simultaneously spurred a worldwide movement for her freedom as a political prisoner.
Get your VIP tickets and join us for a private reception to the show! Proceeds from the event will benefit WIFF’s “Reel Girls: Real Women” media literacy and filmmaking program for girls-at-risk.
