BLACK GOLD is back at it again! Celebrating the best of black screen icons from then 'til now, Black Gold invites you to join us Friday, May 18th for a beautiful 4K restoration screening of master auteur Djibril Diop Mambéty's landmark 1973 film, TOUKI BOUKI!

«With a stunning mix of the surreal and the naturalistic, Djibril Diop Mambéty paints a vivid, fractured portrait of Senegal in the early 1970s. In this French New Wave–influenced fantasy-drama, two young lovers long to leave Dakar for the glamour and comforts of France, but their escape plan is beset by complications both concrete and mystical. Characterized by dazzling imagery and music, the alternately manic and meditative Touki Bouki is widely considered one of the most important African films ever made.»
— Criterion

4K restoration made possible by Martin Scorsese's World Cinema Project.

7:30 PM: PRE-SHOW
8:00 PM: FILM STARTS

There will be prizes!

Generously sponsored by The Beguiling, Boosie Fade, and Eyesore Cinema!
