CASCADE FESTIVAL OF AFRICAN FILMS
The Cascade Festival of African Films shows us, Africa, through the eyes of Africans, rather than a vision of Africa packaged for Western viewers. The films celebrate Africa’s achievements, expose its failures, and reveal possibilities for a hopeful future. Although the films cannot represent an entire continent, we hope to encourage American viewers to become interested in and study African cultures.
