Come and celebrate World Oceans Day in Rosendale by joining us for a town-wide event! All are invited to Main Street to celebrate and support the life and livelihood that the ocean sustains. At 5 PM, The Rosendale Theatre will host a screening of the award-winning documentary, My Octopus Teacher. Then, from 4-7 PM, artist Doug Motel will have an interactive watercolor demonstration at his studio and gallery at 371 Main Street (behind the barbershop). In addition, there will be aquatic culinary offerings available at The Big Cheese and other food businesses, special sea-related treats at the Paws & Tail Pantry, curated books about the ocean at Postmark Books, and much more.
Sankofa is a historically inspired dramatic tale of African resistance to slavery. A self-absorbed Black American fashion model on a photoshoot in Africa is spiritually transported back to a plantation in the West Indies where she experiences first-hand the physical and psychic horrors of chattel slavery, and eventually the redemptive power of community and rebellion as she becomes a member of a freedom-seeking Maroon colony.
