The New York African Film Festival returns to the Film Society of Lincoln Center for its 23rd edition, bringing another thrilling and multifaceted selection of African films from the continent and the Diaspora to New York audiences. Among the highlights this year are the Opening Night film, Tanna, set in one of the world’s last tribal societies; the first narrative feature in the Tuareg language, Akounak Tedalat Taha Tazoughai; shorts programs that consider Africa from France, New York, and beyond; and a host of enthralling narrative features and eye-opening documentaries that reflect on the ways African men and women have broken through borders with films and stories that form part of the global imagination.
