The Black Mozart in Cuba

Writer : Stéphanie James
Director : Steve James

Born in Guadeloupe to a Black slave and a French nobleman, Joseph Boulogne, Chevalier de Saint-Georges, became one of the most remarkable figures of the 18th century—the best fencer in Europe, violonist virtuoso and genius composer, but also the first Black free mason and general in the army.

Shot in Cuba, which dedicates a week of cultural activities to his memory and welcomes Saint Georges as “a great hero of the Caribbean.”

Writer : Zola Maseko

Viva Riva !

(2010/DRCongo/France/Belgium/South Africa/Narrative Feature/96min)

Writer : Djo Munga
Director : Djo Tunda Wa Munga

Viva Riva ! offers a portrait of urban Africa too rarely seen on screen. Even more surprising are its scenes of urgent sensuality, as Riva pursues Nora - or perhaps it’s the other way around.
