The Earl W. and Amanda Stafford Center for African American Media Arts presents Burning Cane. Set among the cane fields of rural Louisiana, BURNING CANE follows a deeply religious, God fearing mother struggling to reconcile her tightly-held convictions of faith with the love she has for her troubled, self-destructive son while also witnessing her dejected pastor's decline. The intimate drama captures the complexity and complacency of family life and religion in rural Louisiana. Director Phillip Youmans will be in discussion after the screening.
