Black, Bold & Brilliant Event: Little Satchmo Film Screening (Virtual Event) @ Virtual Event
Feb 2 – Feb 7 all-day
Black, Bold & Brilliant Event: Little Satchmo Film Screening (Virtual Event) @ Virtual Event | | |
Free virtual screening — available from February 2nd through February 7th. Little Satchmo is an intimate exploration of the iconic Louis Armstrong’s life and legacy through his relationship with the daughter that the public never knew existed. Based on a revealing memoir written by Armstrong’s silent daughter, the film seeks to correct a historical narrative relying on caricature for too long. Louis Daniel Armstrong, nicknamed “Satchmo”, had an illustrious career that spanned five decades. Due to his unique music styling, charisma, and gritty vocals, he is credited with changing the focus of jazz music from “collective improvisation” to solo performance. With an eye for the ladies, Armstrong had several failed marriages but remained with his fourth wife Lucille Wilson until his death in 1971. During his marriage to Wilson, Armstrong had a long time affair with Lucille Preston. Together they had a daughter, Sharon, who Louis lovingly called “Little Satchmo”. To protect them and his career, Lucille and Sharon lived in the shadows of his limelight. Register for this FREE event at:

“Hidden Letters” free film screening and discussion presented by Utah Film Center @ Salt Lake City Downtown Public Library
Feb 8 all-day
“Hidden Letters” free film screening and discussion presented by Utah Film Center @ Salt Lake City Downtown Public Library | | |

Utah Film Center is excited to announce our upcoming free film screening of Hidden Letters Wednesday, February 8 at 7 pm at the Salt Lake Downtown Public Library.

Presented as part of the Utah Film Center’s Through the Lens Series and in partnership with KUER’s Radiowest, Hidden Letters is a story of two Chinese women trying to balance their lives as independent women in modern China while confronting the traditional identity that defines but also oppresses them.

For thousands of years women who were often forced into oppressive marriages and forbidden to read or write, shared a secret language among themselves called Nushu. Written with delicate strokes made from sharpened bamboo sticks dipped in ink, Nushu bonded generations of Chinese women in a clandestine support system of sisterhood and survival.

Join us afterward as KUER’s Radiowest host, Doug Fabrizio, hosts a lively discussion with film director, Violet Du Feng via zoom cinematically exploring China’s gender issues as portrayed by this sensitive and stirring documentary.
