The film is based on a script by well-known Martinican novelist Patrick Chamoiseau and stars Stomy Bugsy, the Cape Verde-born hip-hop singer/composer. Professor Pieprzak will introduce tonight's film. Admission is free. The last and final film, "Moloch Tropical," will be shown on Monday, March 4. See http://cflang.williams.edu for more information.
