Coming off the heels of an award winning debut at the 2013 San Francisco Black Film Festival, Impresa!, a short, silent film on East African entrepreneurs, has embarked on a summer tour of community screenings throughout the Bay Area. We've hosted screenings at the California Historical Society, Freespace, and are bringing the roadshow to Pacific Arabic Resources for an evening of silent film fun. This screening comes at the tail end of the 2013 San Francisco Silent Film Festival (July 18-21), so consider Impresa! as a fitting conclusion. The director will be in attendance, and there's a Q&A afterwards.
Impresa! is proud to host a screening at Pacific Arabic Resources (PAR), as the film was made possible with the language instruction provided by the school. Writer & director of Impresa!, Sephora Woldu, enrolled in Tigrinya courses at PAR and applied her learning into a film project that has reached film festivals internationally. Most recently, Impresa! received an award at the 2013 San Francisco Black Film Festival. Join us for an afternoon of film fun and information about the language offerings at PAR.
