Friday, August 1, 6 to 10pm

Grab a blanket and join us for a free, outdoor screening of the film Felix. Produced in collaboration with the African Film Festival. Special performance by The Buyu Ambroise's Quintet. Music by DJ Asho.

Called a South African equivalent of Billy Elliott, the award-winning film Felix tells the story of 14-year-old Felix Xaba, who dreams of becoming a saxophonist like his late father, but his mother thinks jazz is the devil’s music.

Rain Location: The Bronx Museum of the Arts, 2nd floor North Wing


Free admission
