Namibian Premiere: Bound: Africans Vs. African Americans

AfricAvenir Windhoek has been waiting for this topic to be adressed in film for years.
It finally is made. Brilliantly directed by Peres Owino (Kenya/USA, 2014, 91 min), Bound: African vs African Americans is a hard-hitting documentary that addresses the little known tension that exists between Africans

and African Americans. The film opens with personal testimonials that expose this rift then walks us through the corridors of African colonialism and African American enslavement, laying bare their effects and how these have divided and bound Africans and African Americans.

The film had its African Premiere in July 2015 at the Durban International Film Festival where the film received standing ovations after the screening.
