UPCOMING: Advanced Screening of "Passing Strange" + Tamar-kali performance — Aug. 11


On Tuesday, August 11, our friends over at Imagenation are presenting an advanced screening of Spike Lee's film of the black rock musical Passing Strange.  You'll recall that the musical won a Tony Award last year.  The film went to Sundance this year, where it was acquired by PBS and, I understand, will have its broadcast premiere during the 2010 season of Great Performances.  In the meantime, the film is getting a theatrical run here in NYC at the IFC Film Center starting on August 21.

Cool how Imagenation is also bundling the screening with some live music, and the powerful Tamar-kali no less!

Here's Spike and the cast talking about Passing Strange at Sundance:
