The 2015 edition of Film Africa, the Royal African Society’s annual London film festival celebrating the best African cinema from across the continent and diaspora began in London yesterday and it is expected to run till November 8, 2015.
One of the Friends of Film Africa, Minna Salami has selected seven films directed by African women for you to check out at Film Africa 2015.
According to her, “The topics of the seven films range from coming-of-age stories to romantic quandaries to defiance of patriarchal traditions. But as films directed by African women, what they share in common is that they all contribute to the articulation of a female voice in African film. It is a voice, which no matter how profound, trivial, heavy, entertaining, serious, informative or seductive, – unwaveringly insists on being heard (or seen).“
Among the films she has chosen is Ayanda which stars our dear OC Ukeje.
