Time & Tickets

Peter Farrelly helms the film inspired by a true friendship that transcended race, class and the 1962 Mason-Dixon line. Born into a Jamaican immigrant family, Don Shirley absorbed a wealth of musical influences to create his own genre, blending jazz, spirituals, and European classical music. He carries himself like a prince, garbed in sharp suits or West African robes, speaking perfect, literary English. He is not built for the brutal bigotry of his time, so he hires Tony ‘Lip’ Vallelonga, his exact opposite. An Italian-American raised in the streets and bars of New York, Tony uses his loud mouth to get his way. If that does not work, he uses his fists. As this mismatched pair sets out on their journey, the Negro Motorist Green Book guides them to safe hotels and restaurants in the segregated South, but they will need more than a book to understand each other.

The screening of Sunday 25th August at 12:20hrs can be combined with the Sunday's Film Breakfast.

Peter Farrelly, USA, 2018, 130 min. English, Italian, Russian & German spoken, Dutch subtitles. With Viggo Mortensen, Mahershala Ali.
