AfriDocs will be broadcasting seven short films from ‘Filmmakers Against Racism’, an initiative that was launched in 2008 as a response to the xenophobic violence that rocked South Africa. Sadly, in 2015, there has been a resurgence of this violence, and the insights and stories of these films are still extremely important and relevant.
June also celebrates the music of Africa and Diaspora with Fonko on 18 June – a documentary series that highlights new music from Nigeria, Francophone Africa and South Africa.
Another musical highlight will take place on 11 June with the AfriDocs presentation of the ever popular Marley, the definitive life story of the musician, revolutionary, and legend, from his early days to his rise to international stardom. Please note that this film will start at 19h30 CAT as opposed to 20h00.
