Join us this Friday at Cafe Simpatico for a film screening of La Tumba Mambi.
The docu-fiction La Tumba Mambi is the result of a long collaboration between University of Victoria anthropologist Alexandrine Boudreault-Fournier, Cuban DJ Jigüe, and the members of the Tumba Francesa La Caridad de Oriente, a traditional cultural group located in Santiago de Cuba. Shot entirely in Eastern Cuba and edited in Havana over a period of more than 6 years, this short-length film of 27 minutes speaks to how friendship can make things happen in spite of daily life challenges.
Filmmaker and professor, Alexandrine Boudreault -Fournier will be present to discuss the film and answer questions.

Everyone is welcome! Refreshments including Fair Trade Nicaraguan coffee. Donations are appreciated.
