As promised, the resident film club at The Life House, Reel Life, is re-screening another one of the most demanded films featured at the Lights, Camera, AFRICA!!! 2011 Film Festival.
Directed by Egyptian filmmaker Jihan El-Tahri (118 min. 2008), Cuba, An African Odyssey is an absolute must see for all!
Exploring Cuba-African relations, this film describes the role of Cuba, under the leadership of Fidel Castro, in giving critical support to Africa’s liberation movements. Cuban influence was instrumental in advancing the decolonization process, which brought independence to much of the continent. Travelling through Congo, Angola, Mozambique and Guinea-Bissau, this film conveys a strong sense of what it was like to be a part of these incredible events by presenting the viewer with rarely seen archival footage and in-depth interviews with those who set the course of Africa’s recent history.!
The Life House looks forward to sharing this film with you this Thursday and even more so to the lively discussion which will follow.
