Seven films by Columbia students, alumni or faculty members have been chosen to screen at this year’s Toronto International Film Festival. A total of 18 Columbia filmmakers were involved in the making of the selected films, three of which are features and four shorts.
The evening will celebrate the release of the autobiography, Panther Baby, (Algonquin) with a conversation with the author, political activist Afeni Shakur, and Columbia faculty of political science and public affairs, Dorian Warren. IMPACT Repertory Theatre in Harlem will conclude the evening with a performance. Jamal Joseph, Film Faculty and the author of the illustrative biography Tupac Shakur Legacy (Atria, 2006) publishes a gripping memoir, Panther Baby. The book is an intimate account of Joseph’s coming of age within the Black Panther movement. His memoir recounts his compelling and illuminating personal odyssey.
