***Opening Night Celebration***
Co-Presented by Yole!Africa
Mabele Na Biso (Our Land)
Petna Katondolo, 2013, 33 min.
French, Topoke and Lingala w/ English subtitles
'Aid' and 'Independence' are terms that riddle the rhetoric of Western engagement with and imagination of Africa. But what is independence in our increasingly globalized world? Mabele Na Biso ("Our Land") takes us on a journey through time and space to explore one region's commitment to autonomy and self-determination. Through the unlikely story of a radio station that has been modified to run on a generator fueled by locally produced palm oil, we see a different story of African independence  one rooted in a history of defiance that has become a model of community engagement.

Preceded by
TD Jack Muhindo, 2013, 10 min.
French and Lingala w/ English subtitles
Sarah is a documentary film about a young woman of 26 years. She lives in a poor neighborhood in Kinshasa with her family and aspires to become a great businesswoman.

Followed by post-screening discussion with filmmakers Petna Ndaliko Katondolo & Cherie Rivers Ndaliko, film subject Samual Yagase, and special guests
