A Warm December screens at the Gantt

Although he's best known as an actor, activist and humanitarian, Sidney Poitier has also taken time to sit in the director's chair for a handful of films, most of them during the 1970s. While the majority of these efforts found him co-starring with Bill Cosby and/or Harry Belafonte, he tackled solo male-lead duty for this drama about a doctor who falls for a lovely - and possibly doomed - woman (Ester Anderson) while on a visit to London. Screening is a part of the Classic International Black Cinema Series.
