Tula, The Revolt (A Life without Freedom is No Life at All) directed by Jerome Leinders, will have its New York premiere on Sunday, December 15, 2013 at 3:30pm at the Thalia Theatre at Symphony Space located at 2537 Broadway at 95th Street, New York, New York.
Description: Starring Danny Glover, Tula, The Revolt is an international English spoken feature length movie about the leader of the big slave uprising on the island of Curaçao, a Dutch colony in 1795. It tells the true story of a man who dared to stand up against his oppressors leading his people in a peaceful march for freedom, equality and brotherhood. Although several movies on the broader subject of slavery have been made, there was never a movie on the essence of slave resistance. The revolt on Curaçaobegan peacefully and was meant to be won by words, rather than arms. This makes this true story unique in its kind. Directed by Jeroen Leinders, 2013, 100 min, Netherlands/ Curaçao, Drama, English.
