FOR ONE NIGHT ONLY
Dir. Susanne Rostock, USA, 2012, 104 mins
Harry Belafonte is not just one of the greatest entertainers of our time; he has led one of the great lives of the last century. The superstar singer and actor has been on the front lines of practically every progressive political battle in modern memory. Along the way he became close to some of the most talented and influential people of the latter half of the 20th Century, including Marlon Brando, Eleanor Roosevelt, Bob Dylan, Fidel Castro, Nelson Mandela and Dr Martin Luther King. Susanne Rostock’s film lets us share in the struggles, the tragedies, and, most of all, the triumphs of this extraordinary icon.
