African Cinema, African film in the DMV, African Oscars, Gem of the Rainforest, Mali, NAFCA, Nigeria, Nollywood, One Night in Vegas, The Last Song Before the War
I first wrote about a massive weekend of African film in the DMV about two weeks ago. Although the NAFCA ‘African Oscars’ remains the main event on September 14, it looks like several slightly more affordable screenings/DC premiers will take that Friday evening (the 13th).
You can now by your tickets for a few of these shows in the $20-30 price range now via Eventbrite:
Gem of the Rainforest (DMV Premiere)
One Night in Vegas (World Premiere)
Any suggestions as to which I should go see?
You can also still get tickets to The Last Song Before the War, which chronicles the last Festival in the Desert to be held in Mali before the anti-song, anti-fun bad guys took over. The film screens tonight. I’ll be there as will the Ambassador of Mali, Al-Maamoun Keita, and several Malian musical performers.
