SERVICE TO A MAN : Canadian Premiere – playing at AGO Jackman Hall Saturday 17th, 9pm
Synopsis: It’s 1967 and Eli Rosenberg has a problem; only one medical school in the country will accept him: Meharry Medical College, an all-black medical school in Tennessee, a considerable distance from his life in Brooklyn, New York. Michael Dubois also has a problem; only one medical school in the country will do for him: Meharry Medical College, his successful father’s alma mater, and therefore his, whether he likes it or not. Both Eli and Michael have a problem: they are two outsiders from radically different backgrounds forced to work together inside the pressure cooker of medical school in the turbulent 1960s. Together they battle the intricate mysteries of medicine, demanding professors, and each other in their quest to, ultimately, become healers in the Service To Man.
Screening of the film followed by a Q&A with the cast of the film: Lamman Rucker, Morgan Auld, Aaron Greer.
