Dusty & Stones (dir: Jesse Rudoy, USA). 

Wednesday 1th November

Raindance Film Festival is celebrating Black History Month at Genesis Cinema.


This remarkable debut intimately chronicles the ride of Gazi “Dusty” Simelane and Linda “Stones” Msibi. Dusty and Stones struggle to sustain a country music career in their tiny African Kingdom of Swaziland and yearn for greater recognition. When they are unexpectedly nominated to compete in a Texas battle of the bands, the two cousins journey to the heart of American country music, determined to win big.

Nominated for best Documentary Feature

This is one of four screenings of programmes celebrating the talent of the African diaspora in front and behind the camera, all of which will be happening on the big screen of your local Genesis.

All films will be UK Premieres and therefore as residents of Tower Hamlets, you will have a chance to watch these films fresh off the festival circuit and participate in the post-screening Q&As with the filmmakers.

Entry for all Tower Hamlets residents will be free, just show up on the day and claim your free tickets!

In partnership with Tower Hamlets Council
