Each screening will be preceded by a short film created by students at Cornish College for the Arts.
Run Time: 2 hours 14 minutes
A re-imaging of The Wizard of Oz, set against an urban background with an African American cast. Dorothy is a 24-year-old kindergarten teacher from Harlem, who along with her dog Toto are lost in a snowstorm and end up in the Land of Oz. Dorothy learns the only way to get home is to ease on down the road to see the Wiz. Along the way she meets a scarecrow made of garbage who wants a brain; a Coney Island mechanical Tin Man who wants a heart; and a lion who makes his living as a statue in front of the New York Public Library.
