Children of the Light

Wed, Sep. 10, 7 PM
Miller Theater, 116th and Broadway, Columbia University

The US Premiere of Children of the Light will open the 9th Annual Harlem International Film Festival (Hi) following on the heels of its sold out World Premiere screening in Monaco.

At 82, Tutu is a moral icon and father of modern day South Africa who continues to fight on as a tireless advocate for justice and equality for people in every corner of the globe. "One day he is standing up against the oil sands deal in Canada; next he is calling for human rights for the people of Palestine; then he is stating that he cannot worship a homophobic god."

Co-sponsored by the Center for Palestine Studies and School of the Arts at Columbia University.
