Kino Lorber Announces National Screening Campaign Of KING: A FILMED RECORD; FROM MONTGOMERY TO MEMPHIS!
In honor of the fiftieth anniversary of Martin Luther King Jr.'s "I Have a Dream" speech, Kino Lorber has released the full three-hour cut of KING: A FILMED RECORD; FROM MEMPHIS TO MONTGOMERY. The celebrated documentary was directed by Sidney Lumet and Joseph L. Mankiewicz, and was initially screened for only one evening in 1970. Eventually, a shorter version of the film was aired on television, but it has been forty years since this cut was widely available. You can purchase it now on DVD, or you can get involved with the campaign to share this film with audiences across the country.
This campaign will kick off February 17th, 2013 at the Church of the Intercession in New York City, with a post-screening Q&A featuring Harry Belafonte, DJ Spooky and Richard Kaplan. This is an amazing opportunity to see a rarely-screened classic and hear the legendary Belafonte share his memories of working alongside Dr. King during the Civil Rights Movement.
From there, the folks at Alive Mind Cinema are hoping to host screenings of KING at a theater near you. For more details, check out their official website.
