African Film Festival and Doc Watchers Present: Creation in Exile, Sifuna Okwethu: We Want What's Ours, and Dear Mandela
African Film Festival Inc., Doc Watchers' Inc, and Maysles Cinema Present: Five Days of African Docs

Saturday, May 4th

1:00pm  

Creation In Exile
Daniela Ricci, 2013, 53 min, France

2:30pm  

Sifuna Okwethu: We Want What's Ours
Bernadette Atuahene, 2011, 19min, South Africa

Under Apartheid, the Ndolila family's ancestral land was stolen. Years later, with their descendents trying to regain ownership of the land, the family is still battling apartheid and its lingering effects. And much to the dismay of the middle-class black mortgage holders who now own their ancestral land, the Ndolilas have built shacks on the disputed property.

Dear Mandela
Dara Kell & Christopher Nizza, 2012, 90 min, South Africa

When the South African government promises to 'eradicate the slums' and begins to evict shack dwellers far outside the city, three friends who live in Durban's vast shantytowns refuse to be moved. Dear Mandela follows their journey from their shacks to the highest court in the land as they invoke Nelson Mandela's example and become leaders in a growing social movement. By turns inspiring, devastating and funny, the film offers a new perspective on the role that young people can play in political change and is a fascinating portrait of South Africa coming of age.
