Reel and Meal: "Pip and Zastrow: An American Friendship" at New Deal Cafe
February 8, 2009
Please join us at 7pm on Feb 16 for a showing of "Pip & Zastrow: An American Friendship." Beginning at 6:30 pm an optional vegan buffet meal will be offered by Chef Karim for $13.00, and the film begins at 7pm. This award-winning film was produced by Urcunina Films
and has been shown in part recently on Maryland Public Television. It tells the true story of two men who cross racial boundaries during segregation in the 1940s and form a life-long friendship that takes extraordinary turns. With humor, compassion and heartbreak, Pip and Zastrow navigate through 60 years against the backdrop of the civil rights movement and a country that has yet to overcome deep-seated racism and social inequity. To lead the discussion afterwards, we are honored to host a visit to our Cafe' by Zastrow Simms. He will be accompanied by the film's director and producer, Victoria Bruce.
