Happy Hour

Bisnow and the director of an award-winning film, War Child, invite our readers and friends for a holiday happy hour tonight at new club Midtown at 1219 Connecticut Ave.  Free, but you must sign up!.


Meet the director and producer, Karim Chrobog. War Child is a buzzed-about feature film documenting the life of Sudanese child soldier turned international hip-hop phenomenon, Emanuel Jal.  Emaunel’s lyrics stand out from other rap artists by spreading a message for peace for his beloved war-torn country of Sudan and for prosperity across Africa


A graduate of Georgetown University, Karim noticed the publicity Emanuel was getting about his music and life story and flew to London to meet him.  Despite pitches from BBC and other famous media, Emanuel chose Karim to direct this film about his incredible journey. “The expectation is that it’s a conflict documentary but most people come out of the film and are more hopeful and positive after seeing it,” says Karim.  “Emanuel is a prime example of how people can inspire others through their messages.” 

War Child has already won five film awards.  Join others who have seen it, like Angelina Jolie and George Clooney and check it out at Landmark E Street Cinema.  You can only see it starting this Friday for one week. Click here to learn more about the movie.

Cool stuff happening at K Street Lounge Friday:

We'll see you there!
