Afropop: the Ultimate Cultural Exchange


Afropop: the Ultimate Cultural Exchange

This series celebrates Africa's cultural and historical growth through six insightful films. These films, each introduced by acclaimed actor Idris Elba ( The Wire, American Gangster ), explore the complex lives of contemporary Africans, both on the continent and abroad. The productions include an examination of the efforts of African AIDS activists, a profile of two young South African hip-hop disc jockeys, the touching story of one Cape Town boy’s love for opera music and a look inside the blossoming Nigerian film industry.
