Langston Hughes African American Film Festival
|The Langston Hughes African American Film Festival ™, now in its 11th year, is a major season program of Langston Hughes Performing Arts Institute ™ in Seattle, Washington. This festival screens provocative films from independent Black filmmakers and films about the African American experience. The festival features panel discussions, readings, matinee screenings for middle/high school youth and audience ‘talk-backs’ with filmmakers, industry professionals and community leaders. The Film Festival runs a year-round Underground Railroad Film Series; a series designed to showcase the African American connection with other cultures.
I am often surprised when people talk about the total implausibility of the events in Márquez’s fiction. Having been born and lived in a deeply spiritual and extraordinarily resourceful part of the Caribbean, a lot of what might seem magical to others often seems quite plausible to me.
Of course a woman can live inside her cat, as the character Eva does in Márquez’s 1948 short story ‘Eva Is Inside Her Cat.’ Doesn’t everyone have an aunt who’s done that?"
