SEE EVENT DETAILS
Museum of the African Diaspora and Priority Africa Network present African Diaspora Film Club

Join us for a special edition of AFRICAN DIASPORA FILM CLUB. Modeled after our African Book Club, we will meet once a month to discuss a film that we have all viewed in advance of the discussion. The conversation will be moderated by Cornelius Moore, co-director of California Newsreel and film series curator at MoAD.

We will be discussing the award winning documentary SOFTIE (2020, Sam Soko, 96 minutes). You will receive instructions to join via zoom after you sign up here. Look for an email from MoAD after you sign up, if you don't receive it in your inbox, look in your spam or junk mail.

We will not be screening the film. Please view the film on your own in advance of the discussion. SOFTIE will be available for you to screen on your own January 10 - January 24, 2021 on EVENTIVE.

Photojournalist Boniface Mwangi and Writer & Director Sam Soko will join us for the discussion.

Boniface Mwangi is daring and audacious and recognized as Kenya's most provocative photojournalist. But as a father of three young children these qualities create tremendous turmoil between him and his wife Njeri. When he wants to run for political office he is forced to choose: country or family?

Sam Soko is a film director and producer based in Nairobi who seeks out stories that enable him to engage in socio-political spaces. His work on civic literacy projects in music non-fiction and fiction has allowed him to connect with artists around the world. He is co-founder of LBx Africa a Kenyan production company that service produced the 2018 Oscar nominated short fiction film "Watu Wote". Soko's first feature documentary film Softie is set to premiere at the Sundance Festival in 2020.

This program is presented in partnership with Priority Africa Network
