The Classic Black Cinema Series presents director Fleix De Rooy’s 1990 meditation on faith, race and bigotry. Set in the 1940s on the Dutch Caribbean island of Curacao, this tale of star-crossed lovers focuses on a charismatic black painter, who arrives from Holland to paint a mural of the Virgin Mary in a local church. The white colonial hierarchy bristles, particularly when the painter picks a young, mixed-race, and soon-to-be-married teacher as his model.
