African Films Fest: 'Juwaa'
Over the coming year St. Luke's North Park will be offering several films with deep ties to Africa. Most of the films will be directed and filmed in Africa, though some may focus on the diaspora living in other parts of the world.
The second film of the year is JUWAA (2021).
About the film:
Shot in Belgium and the Democratic Republic of Congo, Juwaa is a subtly powerful drama offering African characters rarely seen on screens.
Years after a traumatic night, a son and a mother reconcile and slowly peel away the layers of their complex relationship.
About the Director -Nganji Mutiri:
Nganji Mutiri is an award-winning artist born in Bukavu, DRC and currently living in Belgium. He works in theatre, cinema, poetry, and photography, always looking for connections and perspectives between the singular and the universal. Juwaa is his first feature film as a writer/director, but he has worked on some other previous films/ projects.
