Join us for an exclusive screening of Playing Through, a new film about the legendary golfer Ann Gregory. The screening will be shared via live-stream from the Martha’s Vineyard African-American Film Festival (MVAAFF) on Monday, August 8th at 5pm ET (2pm PT), where we'll be joined by the film's screenwriter and former Princeton rowing coach, Curtis Jordan, along with the film's two leads, Andia Winslow who plays Gregory and was herself a pro golfer, and co-star, Julia Rae who stars as Gregory’s opponent, Babs.
(On August 16, join us for a lively virtual panel discussion with Jordan, Winslow, and Rae who will discuss the process of creating a film in the midst of a pandemic and stretching the bounds of their diverse creative and professional skill sets to telling Ann Gregory’s story.)
