The 24th New York African Film Festival Presents:
So Far Away From Vietnam (N.Y. Premiere)
Laurence Gavron, France, 2016, 60 min
The fall of Dien Bien Phu and the Geneva Agreements in 1954 signaled the end of a century of France’s presence in Indochina. Large numbers of soldiers from the colonies, particularly North Africa and Black Africa, were repatriated to their home countries – this is their story.
Ousmane Sow (N.Y Premiere)
Beatrice Soule, France, 1999, 26 min
This film is a love story between a man and his sculpture, between a man and a woman, between a man and humanity.
