The Last Revolutionary-New York Premiere
RED CARPET @ 6:00PM; Screening at 7:00pm. Discussion and VIP Reception after screening.
Mac Perkins is in his Los Angeles throwback hideout, plotting to stop an attack from the far right and racist groups around the country. When his old ex-revolutionary buddy Jack Armstrong, whom he has not seen in several years, finds him, Jack challenges Mac’s political stance and his notion that there is a need for a so-called revolution. The two men hash out political ideas and ideology as Jack attempts to make Mac see that his methods are archaic and his plans old-fashioned. During the dramatic and humorous interchange between these two old friends whose lives have taken much different paths, secrets are exposed about both men personally and politically that lead to a life and death confrontation. Celebrated actress, Marla Gibbs makes a cameo appearance as Mac’s friend Millie. Music score composed by late jazz pianist, composer Geri Allen.
