“With razor-sharp irony, Dutch documakers Sander Snoep and Sarah Vos limn a damning portrait of the legacy of colonialism in “Curacao.” The slyly acerbic pic juxtaposes letters from 18th- and 19th-century magistrates and ship captains, matter-of-factly enumerating everyday horrors of the slave trade, with scenes of contemporary Hollanders wining and dining in gated communities; meanwhile, the faces of marginalized blacks silently confront the camera. A well-crafted study in cultural cluelessness.” – Variety
The African Diaspora International Film Festival (ADIFF) will celebrate its 20th anniversary this year. Join us to (re)discover films that had their US or New York premiere in ADIFF and received great reviews in Variety. These films illustrate the depth and range of ADIFF. Some of them have enjoyed a successful career in the USA while others disappeared after touring the festival circuit.
