The Best (of the Best) of the African Diaspora Film Festival

Celebrating the diversity of filmmaking in and about both Africa and the diaspora, the African Diaspora Film Festival has been a city institution for nearly two decades now. Much to our chagrin, though, we have a tendency to miss it. (It's held in late November and early December, right in the heart of awards-bait movie-screening season.) But thanks to BAM, moviegoers can now catch up on some of the more notable titles from the festival, with a weeklong series that starts tonight. We've waded through the selection and come up with five favorites. Here is the best of the Best of the African Diaspora Film Festival.
