Black Joy Film Fest: THE WIZ
August 5, 2021 @ 8:30 pm - 11:30 pm
In this re-imagining of The Wizard of Oz, a young kindergarten teacher from Harlem finds herself in a metropolitan Land of Oz, where she is greeted by Munchkins and other interesting characters. On her journey down the Yellow Brick Road in search of the Wiz, Dorothy (Diana Ross) encounters a garbage-stuffed scarecrow (Michael Jackson) in a junkyard, a broken-down tin man (Nipsey Russell) caught in the decay of an old amusement park and a cowardly lion (Ted Ross) posing as a stone statue outside a museum.
