Tickets are $10 for Matinee (students 10 - 18 $5); $25 for the reception and evening show.

The film examines Minshall’s life and art, a tapestry woven from multiple threads that include his “masography” coursing through 26 years; his design and stage acumen (documented in the 2006 presentation “The Sacred Heart”); the Carnival stage (the Mas) in Trinidad preparing him for the world stage, Barcelona, Atlanta and Salt Lake City Olympic Games contribution; and his set pieces of political protest and entertainment provoking parallel emotions in major North American, European and Asian cities

The film has been retooled, featuring an incisive interview and new footage, and was recently featured at the opening of the New York Film festival. Producer/Director Dalton Narine, has taken the film to the UK for viewings in Cardiff and Port Talbot, Wales, Worcestershire, England and Tipperary, Ireland. Other screenings include Bangkok, Thailand; Pretoria, South Africa; and Florida and Ohio, USA.
