One of the most exiting events in West Africa happens every two years in
. It’s FESPACO ; the preeminent PanAfrican Film Festival. People locally and around world have been making and continue to make quality, relevant and life-affirming films. As I was sharing with a friend, we don’t have to limit ourselves to what is presented in mainstream movie theaters. Branch out, attend film festivals, and actively learn that there are other voices in this world other than “ Burkina Faso ’s”. Hollywood
I’m thrilled that the
will host the showing of several African produced films. Here is a link to learn the details: http://aampmuseum.org/demo_dev.php/page/july-august Philadelphia African-American Museum
Below is a link to photographs by Andrea Frazzeta of the 2011 FESPACO. This is an international event, but I like how she shows in these shots the local angle and involvement of everyday folk. Enjoy and go in 2013.
