  • Korkoro Opens March 25 at Cinema Village in NY

  • Mar 24, 2011 to Apr 1, 2011
  • Location: The Village
  • Description:

    Lorber Films is pleased to announce the U.S. theatrical premiere of Tony Gatlif’s (Exiles, Latcho Drom) epic drama KORKORO (Liberté), the story of a wandering tribe of Gypsies who were rounded up by the Germans in WWII France.  Based on historical events, KORKORO features a genre-shattering original score by Delphine Mantoulet that pulsates with Gatlif’s signature musical verve and poignancy, this time infusing the Gypsy sound with influences from period musicians such as Maurice Chevalier and Django Reinhardt.  The film resonates with the current European political context in which nations grapple with the integration – and in some cases deportation – of Gypsies amidst significant controversy.  Gatlif’s latest work wields an impressive cast of French talent including Marie Josée Croze (Tell No One, The Diving Bell and the Butterfly), Marc Lavoine (The Good Thief) and Rufus (Amelie).  KORKORO will have its U.S. theatrical premiere on March 25th at the Cinema Village in New York, follow

    About the Artist
    Fun, unexpected, original – there are many words that could be used to describe Did Dontzoff’s paintings because this artist's unique style refuses to fit into ordinary categories. However you characterize them, it is certain that Dontzoff has created a singular body of work with a veritable brand appeal to it. The Russian native crafts wild images of otherworldly figures that appear to zigzag and fold into their surroundings, themselves, and each other. The beings alternate between proud, statuesque poses and others that deflate into a thrilling jumble of lines. They often seem to split apart or reach toward one another so that you cannot tell where one figure ends and another begins. Dontzoff employs a robust, graphic style with areas of flat, vivid col

    Finally, New York has a night dedicated to cutting edge African culture. “Made In Africa” is the initiative of 5 Entrepreneurs of African origins residing in New York City.



    "Made in Africa" brings, a pan-African music night thrown by young urban Africans. "Made in Africa" will feature guest performers from Africa and across the spectrum of the African diaspora. Boima explains it best, "New York has seen an increase in African immigration in recent years by folks from all walks of life, generations, countries, and social backgrounds. We have come to New York via different places and for different purposes. While immigrants have always shaped the realities of New York, and Africans are truly making their impact as business owners to street hustlers, we feel that the nightlife has not been reflective of this demographic shift. Downtown is ready for a wake up call. We are here and we are going to show you how we party."
