Film Screening Community Presentation – Nina Simone: The Lost Album
March 18 @ 6:00 pm - 10:00 pmFree
Stephanie Sheppard is a Little Falls resident, and 52 years ago, she and her brother wrote eight songs for the legendary Nina Simone to perform. Unfortunately, Simone died before any of them were recorded. Longtail Films, out of England, made a documentary about the lost music and found just the perfect performer to bring them to light.
In the film, superstar Emeli Sande sets out on an emotional journey to bring to life that set of songs written for Nina Simone but never performed. Forgotten for all these years, these songs are beautiful and shine a light on Nina Simone’s world. They are messages from the past.
The film has never been shown in the United States, so we’re going to make this a party. Join us as we watch the film, hear from the film’s creators in England with a pre-recorded presentation, and then get Stephanie’s perspective as she fills in the details about being at the center of such an important historical work.
After that, we’ll have some wine, cheese, and live music. Details will follow shortly.
The film’s run time is approximately 105 minutes, then the prerecorded presentation and Q&A with Stephanie. Please plan to spend the evening with us!
