Poet, actor, and musician Saul William performs at BAMcafé Live tomorrow (2/16) following the premiere screening of his film, Aujourd’hui (Tey).
Named one of Film Comment’s Best Unreleased Films of 2012, Aujourd’hui (Tey) follows Satché’s (Saul Williams) last day of life. Though Satché’ is strong and in good health, he accepts his imminent death as he walks through the streets of Senegal, taking in the sites of his past as if he were looking at them for the last time: his parents’ house, his first love, the friends of his youth, and his wife and children.
The screening will be followed by a Q&A with director Alain Gomis and actors Saul Williams and Anisia Uzeyman, and then the live performance by Saul Williams in BAMcafé.
Deets on the screening can be found here.
The live performance is free, starts at 9:30PM and is located at the BAMcafé- Peter Jay Sharp Building- 30 Lafayette Ave Brooklyn, NY 11243.
