For Immediate Release

The film series, Cinema from Africa and the Diaspora, continues on Thursday, September 25 with Quatier Mozart, beginning at 6:30 p.m. in the University of Hawaii at Hilo University Classroom Building 100. General admission is $3.00; there is no admission charge for UH Hilo/Hawai`i Community College students.

Quatier Mozart is a tale that incorporates Cameroonian folklore and traditional wit. Directed by Jean-Pierre Bekolo, the film is in French with English subtitles. The story evolves around the not-very-sentimental education of a young school girl known a Queen of the Hood, who with assistance from the local sorceress, enters the body of a young man so that she can discover for herself the real sexual politics of the neighborhood. The film was awarded the Prix Afrique en Creation Cannes Film Festival (1992).
