Passport Thursdays – Outdoor International Film Series

07.26.18, 7:00 pm

Join us Thursday evenings, 7 – 10pm on the lawn in front of the Queens Museum for Passport Thursdays, our annual outdoor international film series.

This year we’ve selected a series of films that explore the classic road movie genre – roadtrips, travel (mis)adventures or life-changing journeys, this theme resonates across cultures and ages. Over the course of five Thursdays, the featured films will take us to India, Ecuador, Ghana, Colombia, and the Dominican Republic.

Come early to get your body moving  with Masala Bhangra: Bollywood dance workout classes from 7 – 7:45, then get cozy on our picnic blankets for the feature film starting at 8pm.

*In case of rain, all programs will take place inside the museum!

FILM: Keteke, Peter Sedufia, Ghana, 70 min, 2017, English
It’s the 80s rail service system in Ghana, and the train is the only means of transport from the outskirts. A couple – BOI and ATSWEI is bent on delivering their first baby in Akete but misses their first train. A wrong decision finds them in the middle of nowhere. Will they make it on time for the delivery, or, risk losing the baby and mother?
