For the entire month of October, Film Independent at LACMA is partnering with the LMU School of Film and Television to present Cameras d’Afrique: The Films of West Africa, curated by host of KCRW’s The Treatment, Elvis Mitchell. Together, they’ll be showing over 20 films that focus on the last 50 years of West African cinematic talent. Many of these films have never been screened in the US, and many of the filmmakers will be on hand to talk about their work.
