NYAFF Celebrates 20 Years

New York African Film Festival

     A half-century of African cinema is celebrated on this 20th anniversary of the event. Paying tribute to Senegalese filmmaker Ousmane Sembène -the ‘father of African cinema’, this two-month, multi-venue event,  showcases classic and contemporary African films and documentaries.

This anniversary marks a transition to a second generation of filmmakers that is, notably, represented by an increasing number of women.   Chinonye Chukwu’s   autobiographical  film, Alaskalandlooks especially interesting to me. Described as:

” ……..intimate window onto the conflicts of a young Alaska-raised Nigerian struggling to come to terms with his cultural heritage.”
