Dinner & a Movie @ Captain Kidd Restaurant
March 15 @ 5:30 pm - 9:00 pm| $25 Per person.
THE LAST SONG BEFORE THE WAR is a feature-length documentary/concert film that captures the inspiring rise and uncertain future of Mali”s annual Festival in the Desert. The festival history is told from the perspective of Manny Ansar, the co-founder and festival director, the Grammy-award winning musicians who perform, and the intrepid travelers from around the world who make the epic journey to attend the festival. Against the backdrop of stunning musical performances, the film subtly reveals the challenges and triumphs of creating an artistic event in such challenging economic and political times. After 12 years of success and unforgettable musical moments, the Festival in the Desert came to a halt in 2012 when Al Qaeda and militant extremists seized control of Northern Mali. THE LAST SONG BEFORE THE WAR chronicles the 2011 Festival, arguably the last edition that still captured its original goals – a global display of peace, reconciliation, and the healing power of music.
