Green Book Programme 2020

by Peter Farrelly Gala Premieres

The setting is 1960’s New York, prior to the American Civil Rights Movement: Tony Lip is working as a bouncer in the Bronx. When the kind-hearted Italian-American gets an order to drive Dr. Don Shirley to the Southern States, he does not give it a second thought. Shirley, as eloquent as a poet and one of the world's best jazz pianists, is planning a concert tour from New York to the conservative South, where, however, segregation is still being practiced. In order to avoid any possible racist attacks, the two very different men stick to the "Negro Motorist Green Book", an annual guide for African Americans containing tips on motels, restaurants and gas stations... Brimming with humour, GREEN BOOK is the riveting story of that kind of friendship which comes to transcend the boundaries of race, education and class.
