Mama Africa (2011)

Mama Africa is the biography of the South African singer, Miriam Makeba, who was the first black, African musician to win international stardom. Her music influenced artists across the globe, although her style stayed anchored in her South African roots. She sang for John F. Kennedy and Marlon Brando, performed with Harry Belafonte, Nina Simone and Dizzie Gillespie. Makeba was also a vocal campaigner against apartheid, and always stood for truth and justice. This documentary traces her life and music through more than fifty years of performing. Friends and colleagues, some who knew her from the beginning, in the dance halls of South Africa (remember Pata Pata ), together with her grandchildren, allow us to know the remarkable journey of Mama Africa.

Max and Mona (2004)

Traditional beliefs say that the souls of the dead will not join their ancestors until the mourners cry at their graves. Max Bua, 19, from a South African farm community, has inherited his grandfathers talent for mourning. Despite this heaven-sent gift, Max has his sights set on becoming a doctor and must travel to Johannesburg to begin his studies. With money the villagers collected for his tuition fees, and a wedding gift, he sets off to the city. Director Teddy Mattera has constructed a slapstick comedy about a young boys coming of age and his wild adventure with a most unlikely partner in crime.

We just grab a coffee and speak French. Some people have been coming every week for months... it creates a kind of warmth to the group.
