The African American Film Critics Association (AAFCA), in association with Atlanta’s historic Auburn Avenue Research Library will commemorate the cinematic legacy of Prince with a screening of his iconic film, “Purple Rain,” on Sunday, April 30 at 3 p.m. EST.
The event will include the screening followed by a panel discussion that showcases his career in movies. During his lifetime, the iconic entertainer, starred in four films: “Under the Cherry Moon,” “Sign of the Times,” “Graffiti Bridge,” and the highly-lauded “Purple Rain.”
“Prince was one of the few black musicians who enjoyed success in cinema,” said AAFCA President, Gil Robertson. “His aptitude as a visual artist was stunning and continues to be influential today. It is both a privilege and an honor to share his cinematic works with our community partners around the country.”
