FILM NIGHT- ‘When we were Kings’


Hi,

This month, we are going to show our monthly film on WEDNESDAY 29th October. Please come and watch the 1996 documentary film WHEN WE WERE KINGS – Muhammad Ali’s famous ‘rumble in the jungle’ in Zaire (DR Congo).

When: 7pm, Wednesday 29th October 2008
Where: Barefoot (rain or no-rain)

A few days before the United States Presidential elections, WHEN WE WERE KINGS is an interesting film to watch, and contemplate what the world might have been like if ‘they’/’we’ had remained kings and queens… (more from Wikipedia)… The film shows the buildup to the fight. Ali is shown talking about his beliefs regarding Africans and African-Americans, speaking of the inherent dignity of the native Africans and his hopes for African-Americans in the future.

See you on Wednesday,
– from the BFC team
