2019 African Film Festival Shorts
2019, 120 minutes, Digital, NR
This mixed genre shorts program features highlights from selections from New York’s African Film Festival. The program covers wide array of African cinema, from goofy Nollywood inspired Wrong Con and Afro-futuristic and supernatural Hello, Rain from Nigeria; heart-jerking Razana from Madagascar; documentary and mythical The Prophetess from the Democratic Republic of Congo; to Senegal’s essayic hybrid My Beloved Co-Wife.
The New York African Film Festival takes cinema of all genres throughout Africa and the African Diaspora to weave a story of the present. From the archival to the experimental, classic fictional narrative to documentary, the festival, now in its 26th year, selects treasured stories of the past to contextualize the present and all of its possible futures.
