Medicine For Melancholy : Bike-in Movie

Monday, November 30th
Meet at Government Center at 7pm

Join us Sunday night as we embark on a group bicycle ride from Government Center to a FREE showing of Medicine for Melancholy at Sweat Records. This is in conjunction with the Borscht Film Festival. The weather is supposed to be nice that evening.

About the film:

"A love story of bikes and one-night stands told through two African-American twenty-somethings dealing with issues of class, identity, and the evolving conundrum of being a minority in rapidly gentrifying San Francisco-a city with the smallest proportional black population of any other major American city."

Sweat Records
5505 NE 2nd Ave
Miami, FL 33137

Film starts at 8pm

Free CCCV cocktails (Jupina & Rum) may be served. CCCV is the Roman numeral for 305.

We will return to Government Center once the film is over.
It's a nice commute, approximately 9 miles round trip.

*Please bring lights for your bicycles. A bicycle lock is also recommended.

About Borscht:

"The Borscht Film Festival (est. 2005) is Miami's fresh local independent film fest. We are a yearly event held at iconic Miami venues that commissions and showcases films created by emerging artists telling Miami stories that go beyond the typical portrayal of the city as a beautiful but vapid party town, forging the cinematic identity of the city. We are the home of the CCCV New Wave."

About the director:

Barry Jenkins, director of Medicine for Melancholy is born and raised in Liberty City.



  1. This looks interesting. Let me see if I can fanagle it. It would be fun.

  2. Thanks for hosting this screening, I always pop into Sweat Records when I'm in town so I'm glad you're screening the film there! Wish I could be there for this!

  3. I'll be at the Wallflower for the screening of the Ben Stein video, "Expelled". That starts at 4:00PM.

    If the post-screening discussion ends early enough, [it may get intense], I'll join you.

  4. This has been changed from Sunday 11/29 to Monday 11/30
