First Run Features presents a New DVD Box Set -- THE BEST OF GLOBAL LENS: AFRICA
HOLLOW CITY (Angola)
One of the few films to have been made in Angola since it was torn apart by civil war, this stunning drama about a war orphan who escapes from his caretakers to find the village where he grew up is set in Luanda in the aftermath of the war.
"By turns eye-opening and terrifying."
THE NIGHT OF TRUTH (Burkina Faso)
This award-winning debut feature by one of Africa's most talented female directors takes place in an unnamed country, where two peoples have finally embarked on a path to peace after a decade of atrocities.
"Pertinent rather than exploitative....With originality and heart."
-The New York Times
ANOTHER MAN'S GARDEN (Mozambique)
Sofia, a young girl in Mozambique who is studying to be a doctor, finds that her professor wants more from her than hard work. This acclaimed feature debut brings to light the terrible struggle women in many African countries face.
"Richly atmospheric and full of telling details."
-Museum of Modern Art
