The VIPP Report: Film screening will profile a journey of peace and connection



(Louisville, KY) The Kentucky Center for African American Heritage, (KCAAH) in collaboration with the African American Theatre Program at the University of Louisville and the Black Media Collaborative presents Welcome Home-A Journey Into Afro-Costa Rica as part of their 2017 GriotFilm series on Sunday, February 12th at 3:00 pm at the KCAAH, 1701 West Muhammad Ali Blvd.

Filmmaker Brandon Hill documents his journey to discover peace and connection with the greater African Diaspora.  Hill initially wanted to travel to Costa-Rico to film a wedding but after visiting and experiencing their rich culture, discovering a community of African descendants who had a very rich narrative he decided to document THEIR story which is really HIS story.  It became more of a homecoming for Brandon.  He decided that their story would provide an opportunity to understand the commonalities shared throughout the African Diaspora.

Welcome Home-A Journey Into Afro-Costa Rica will air at 3:00 pm followed by a question and answer session.  There’s a $5.00 suggested donation to view the film and discussion.
