Award-winning filmmaker Frances-Anne Solomon will kick off Black History Month with a special screening and reception to launch the Toronto theatrical release of her feature film A Winter Tale. The event will take place on Thursday, Jan. 31 at the Revue Cinema with festivities beginning at 6 p.m. The film has already gained critical acclaim, opening the 2007 Reel World Film Festival, where it took home the award for Outstanding Canadian Feature. Since then it has screened to rave reviews at festivals internationally, including Montreal and Halifax, and most recently opened the highly respected New York African Diaspora Film Festival in Manhattan. A Winter Tale takes place in Toronto’s Parkdale neighborhood and examines the aftermath of a violent and tragic shooting during which a nine-year-old boy is killed by a bullet meant for a notorious drug dealer. Through Solomon’s lens, the audience is given a glimpse at ‘black-on-black’ violence in Toronto’s urban core, as well as the emotional journey of a group of men who must deal with their “Canadian reality”. Jon Sarapong, 2008
