'Jazz Mama' and "A Blues for Tiro' [NY African Film Festival]
Doc Watchers and The Maysles Cinema present a one night screening of Congolese film "Jazz Mama" about women confronting issues of rape in the Congo where rape is endemic, and South African film portrait "Blues for Tiro" about the activist Abram Onkgopotse Tiro who was murdered in 1974. Part of The New York African Film Festival.

Jazz Mama
Dir. Petna Katondolo, 2010, 30 min., Congo
How do you talk about rape in a place where basic human rights are systematically violated? Katondolo skirts the boundaries of reality and fiction, offering a compelling portrait of Conoglese women who stand strong in their communities and denounce the violence they experience.

A Blues for Tiro
Dir. Steve Kwena Mokwena, 2007, 48 min., South Africa
A poetic tribute to an extraordinary black consciousness activist and inspirational leader, who was murdered in 1974.
