Mumblecore Jammin’ — Wah Do Dem Providence Premiere

12AM ON 28/08/2009
BY Ben Jones


UPDATE: In case of rain, film will be at the Black Rep.

So, perfect downtown night. The rain will be come and gone by early evening, returning after midnight. What better night to catch a movie outdoors? Arrive early enough and you can make the seats at Tazza your own cafe cinema.

But this isn’t just any film. It’s a work by some of our own.

From artist/educator/troubadour/dj/surfer Damian Ewens:

Providence locals Sam Fleischner and Ben Chace, just won Best Narrative Feature at the LA Film Fest for their movie Wah Do Dem and they’re coming home to do a Providence premiere this Friday, August 28th outside of Tazza at 8pm.

The film, Wah Do Dem, was filmed in Brooklyn and Jamaica and includes reggae legends The Congos, Carl Bradshaw (old-time Jamaican actor from “The Harder They Come”), Sean Bones and Norah Jones.

Should be a blast and there will be some great summertime reggae too!

8pm, Friday, Westminster & Union Streets
