November 1 marked the first day of Film Africa in London, a 10-day event celebrating some of the best in cinema and culture from the continent. This year the festival will feature 70 films including Mama Africa, the much-talked about documentary about the life of Miriam Makeba, Wanlov and M2NSA‘s pidgin musical Coz of Moni, and Tey, the Senegalese film featuring artist and poet Saul Williams.
