His Name Is Green Flake is inspired by the true story of enslaved pioneer and Latter-day Saint Green Flake. His courageous cross-country journey to prepare the way for the Saints was integral to the “Mormon Migration” and the settlement of Utah. His Name Is Green Flake has been awarded Best Film in 10 different festivals, including the Venice Film Awards, the London Independent Film Awards, and most recently, the LA Film Awards.
BYU’s International Cinema will screen the film between 16 and 19 February (click here for more information and scheduling). On 17 February there will be a special screening; Mauli B, the film’s director, will be present to introduce the movie and then hold a Q&A afterward. Come to learn more about this important but little-heard story from Church history.
