The New Wave In African Cinema
Very interesting-sounding series at the Cinematheque this week. I've been too overwhelmed by other projects to give it a lot of attention, so I haven't previewed a film in it; in fact, I've barely seen any African cinema at all, ever. Several directors will be in attendance, and some of the films sound highly gripping - like Man on Ground, screening Sunday, or Restless City, on Tuesday (pictured above). There's also a documentary about Barack Obama's African sister! Looks like each film will screen only once; it makes me wish I still lived a couple blocks from the theatre, back in Chez Bedbug, because I'd see them all...
