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

Ps-pit

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:
