"'Sankofa' (1993, 125mins, Director: Haïlé Gerima.) 

Mona, a contemporary African American model is on a shoot at the infamous slave forts in Ghana, West Africa. Spirits lingering in the dungeons that were used to detain enslaved Africans over a century earlier possess her. She becomes Shola, "house slave" on a sugar plantation; she is in love with Shango, a rebellious field slave and she idolizes Nunu, her surrogate mother. Shola too, learns rebellion when the master advances on her one too many times."

The Sankofa Reel Cinema Film Series will host a $5 screening of special films each month with significance to the global pan African movement.
