'Twinkl' and 'Roots' co-presented by New York African Film Festival, Doc Watchers & Caribbean Cultural Center
Roots
Dir. Evan Turk, USA, 2011, 4 min.
Based on the history of the African Burial Ground in Lower Manhattan, this animated short explores the ritual of coffins and burial as an unbreakable connection between the Africans brought to America as slaves and those who stayed behind in West Africa.

Twinkl
Dir. Gilles Elie-Dit-Cosaque, Martinique, 2008, 51 min.
In the seventies, whilst Martinique was facing social unrest, one man Robert Saint-Rose, a great admirer of Aime Cesaire, planned an incredible project: to be the first Frenchman in space. Thanks to the testimony of politicians, scientists and personalities of this period in time, and, of course, Robert Saint-Rose's family, "Twinkl", describes this extraordinary adventure and finally draws the portrait of a man, a dream, a society.

Followed by Discussion & Reception.
