Join us at The Africa Center on Thursday, September 28th at 7:00PM ET for Film at The Africa Center screening of Finye. Vivid social satire with overtones of Romeo and Juliet, Finye (The Wind) tackles the generation gap in post-colonial West Africa. Its heroine is the pot smoking daughter of a provincial military governor who falls in love with a fellow university student, the descendent of one of Mali’s chiefs of an earlier age. A mix of politics, romance and social commentary, the film casts a critical eye on both the ancient and modern values.
In partnership with the African Film Festival, Film at The Africa Center will host a series showcasing a selection of films by emerging African filmmakers. These films will reflect a range of genres, themes, and visual styles, allowing audiences to experience the vibrant tapestry of African cinema.
