“Alone, far from home, and far from justice, he has three days to learn the truth about a murder…and the truth is a story you won’t forget.”
Tonight, join Friends of Screen on the Green for the fourth and final film of the season, A Soldier’s Story.
This 1984 American drama based on the Pulitzer Prize-winning production of “A Soldier’s Play” is a story about racism and segregation in a African American U.S. Army regiment led by white officers. Tensions run high when an African American officer, unprecedented at the time, is sent to investigate the murder of an African American sargeant in Louisiana at the end of World War II.
Fun fact: Denzel Washington and David Alan Grier appear as minor characters in A Soldier’s Story.
As always, the movie will play live on a huge 20′x40′ screen between 7th and 12th Streets NW, and will begin at sunset. We suggest arriving early to stake a claim on your preferred spot!
