African Diaspora Film Festival Wrapping Up

 NEW YORK  -- As the African Diaspora International Film Festival enters its last week, the focus is on women. The selection will include films and documentaries about strong and resilient women. The festival runs until December 14 in New York City.


Josephine Baker: Black Diva in a White Man's World / Germany (Director: Annette von Wangenheim) - This documentary reveals Baker as a great artist and as a woman of character, who refused to be just an entertainer. Rather, she used her status to improve the lives of those in need, as a resistance fighter, an ambulance driver during World War II, and as an activist against racial discrimination.

 

Sheherazade: Tell me a Story / Egypt (Director: Yousry Nasrallah) - Official selection at the Venice and Toronto International Film Festivals, "Sheherazade" focuses on Hebba, an Egyptian TV host. Hebba defies husband and society when she launches a talk show series, giving women a chance to talk about their lives, struggles, and willingness to pay a very high price to fight back against abusive men.

Uncommon Woman / Burkina Faso (Director: Dao Abdoulaye) - An African woman retaliates against her cheating husband, by taking a second husband.  This comedy puts a fresh twist on marital relationships, in a society where men are entitled to have more than one spouse, but women are not.

Hearing Radmilla / USA (Director: Angela Webb) - This is the portrait of Radmilla Coy, the first African American Miss Navajo Nation, who explores her dual identity through music.

Working Girl / Antigua (Director: Nigel Trellis) - Lotus White is a brilliant student who overcomes difficult circumstances to achieve her dream: get a college education.
