The 4th Annual African Diaspora Film Series presented in collaboration with the Riverside Theater of Riverside Church opens a cycle of thought provoking films curated by the African Diaspora Film Festival team.

In preparations for the 17th Annual African Diaspora Film Festival-Nov.27 to Dec.15- ADFF will showcase a total of 13 titles in different Manhattan venues.  All screenings on the weekend of August 21 will be held at the Riverside Theatre of the Riverside Church, 91 Claremont Ave. at 120th St.

"Gospel Hill," directed by Giancarlo Esposito, is a metaphor of America today as "greed and idealism collide" in a social environment where human tensions are high and people's humanity is strongly marked by a turbulent past. (In English.) Opening Night Friday, August 21.  Reception at 6:30pm; film at 7:30pm.   Q&A with Giancarlo Esposito after the screening.

"Migration of Beauty" by Chris Flaherty is an informative film that provides a strong social commentary regarding the relationship between the United States and Ethiopia and the presence of Ethiopians in the US. The film shows how sustaining a democracy is an ongoing process with multiple voices and participants. (In English.) Saturday, August 22 @ 4p.m.  Q&A with Chris Flaherty after the screening.

The backdrop of "Silent Shame" is a traditional Latino family in which rules and norms dictate everybody's life. Men marry women; women have children, and so on and so forth. Nevertheless, "Silent Shame" evolves in a way in which issues presented in the film are central and relevant to American society today: sexual orientation, racism, AIDS and the Health Care system are issues that make the film a very revealing piece of work. Directed by Tadeo Garcia. (In English.) Saturday August 22 @ 6:30pm.  Q&A with one of the lead actors after the screening.

Poverty is rampant in the world. Whose fault is it? In the though provoking and informative documentary "The End of Poverty?,"Philippe Diaz illustrates eloquently the origins of this poverty that affects many parts of the world. Through interviews with experts from all over the world, the film discusses how poverty is linked to colonialisms, neo-colonialism and globalization. (In English, and French /Spanish/Maa with English subtitles.) Screening on Sunday, August 23 at 2pm followed by a discussion.
