WIN A PAIR OF PASSES TO SEE OLD STONE at RITZ BOURSE (Opens 12/9)

Reelblack is giving five (5) lucky readers passes for two to see OLD STONE, the acclaimed Chinese psychological thriller, which opens this Friday (12/9) at the Ritz at The Bourse (4th and Ranstead) in Philadelphia.  Pass is good for any screening next week Monday-Thursday.

Enter to win by sending an email with your FULL NAME and MAILING ADDRERSS in the body of the message and THE PHRASE “OLD STONE PASSES” in the Subject line to Reelblackinc@live.com Winner will be announced Thursday night.

In Johnny Ma’s thrilling debut feature, a Chinese taxi driver finds himself plunged into a Kafkaesque nightmare where no good deed goes unpunished. Beginning as a gritty social-realist drama before u-turning into a blood-drenched noirOld Stone follows the repercussions of a car accident in a society where life is cheap and compassion is ruinously expensive.

When a drunken passenger causes Lao Shi to swerve and hit a motorcyclist, the driver stops to help the injured man. When no police or ambulance arrive he drives the victim to the hospital, checks him in and finds himself liable for the man’s medical bills. The repercussions of Shi’s selfless act expose a society rife with bone-chilling callousness and bureaucratic indifference. On the verge of losing his cab, his job and his family, Lao Shi (in a magnificent performance by Chen Gang) has to resort to desperate measures to survive.

DAUGHTERS OF THE DUST MOVIE MEETUP THIS SATURDAY 12/10 AT RITZ BOURSE

Join us in support of 25th Anniversary restoration of Daughters of the Dust the afternoon of Saturday December 10 at the Ritz at the Bourse, 4th Street between Market and Chestnut at 1:10pm.

Afterward, we will walk down the street to Cosi Coffee Shop for discussion and giveaways (including a few Daughters of the Dust posters kindly provided by Cohen Media Group).

25 years after its world theatrical premiere at Film Forum, Julie Dash’s groundbreaking DAUGHTERS OF THE DUST returns in a stunning new restoration. Set in the legendary Sea Islands off the South Carolina/Georgia coast in 1902, the film follows a Gullah family (descendants of West African slaves) on the eve of its migration to the North. Led by a group of women who carry with them ancient African traditions, the extended family readies itself to leave behind friends, loved ones and their insulated way of life. Can these women hold fast to their sacred religious beliefs and customs, or will they be swept into the race toward an era of science and industry? This richly costumed drama, structured in tableaux to reflect the art and icons of African tradition, testifies movingly to the secret celebrations and packed-away sorrows of African-American women.

EMERGENCY CONTACT AT UNITED BANK BUILDING THIS FRIDAY 12/9

On Friday December 9 at 7pm, Reelblack and PEC will present the Philadelphia Premiere of EMERGENCY CONTACT (2016/ 57 min./ dir. Nikki Whalen). Writer/Producer Julz Brewer will be in attendance to participate in a post-film Q&A.

The feature will be preceded by the short film SPACE TRADERS (1994/ dir. Reginald Hudlin), from the seldom-seen sci-fi anthology, COSMIC SLOP.

EMERGENCY CONTACT: Can 30-something Roxanna Biltmore handle the matters of her heart concerning her high school crush or will she try something new with Vince Cotton? Watch this woman go from NO emergency contacts to two.

SPACE TRADERS: A conservative African American politician (Robert Guillame) must choose between his people’s survival and appeasing his white colleagues when space aliens propose to share their profound knowledge in exchange for all black people on earth.
