Featured Film:

Black Girl at the Grand Illusion

With the darkest days of summer upon us and seemingly every art house theatre in Seattle playing some combination of Captain Fantastic, Hunt for the Wilderpeople, Train to Busan or Café Society, the venerable Grand Illusion stands out with its presentation of Ousmane Sembène’s classic of African cinema, the 1966 film Black Girl. Playing in a new restoration to commemorate its 50th Anniversary, and paired with his 1963 debut film Borom SarretBlack Girl is about a young Senegalese woman who works as a domestic servant in France.
