African Film Season on Film Four

This week, Film Four is screening a series of films made in Africa, by and about African people. 

Last night, they screened Johnny Mad Dog, which depicts the experience of child soldiers during the Liberian civil war.  Click here to read more and watch the trailer.  

Tonight, Film Four will screen A Screaming Man, a drama from Chad about guilt, betrayal and intergenerational father/son conflict.  A Screaming Man also touches on the effect the Chinese takeover of African countries is having on the lives of ordinary African people.  Check out the trailer above.
