MNET’s season of humour for the African Film Library
M-Net, the multi-channel Pan-African content provider, has announced the further roll-out of the African Film Library (AFL) with a season of films dedicated to African humour.
This new season of films follow the launch of the video-on-demand service earlier this year, and will feature a selection of hit African comedies.
The African film industry has a rich heritage in the comedy genre, producing films that provide a unique perspective on African culture and its political landscape, and often a source of escapism in times of unrest.
The catalogue includes:
Max and Mona, a story of village boy with extraordinary mourning skills. FESPACO 2007 winner Le President A-T-IL le Sida aka The President has Aids. Cameroonian comedy Pousse-Pousse and Rickshaw Tricycle Man by Daniel Kamwa. Soweto Green, a political drama-comedy made after South Africa's first historic democratic elections. Zimbabwean comedy-drama Kini and Adams by Idrissa Ouedraogo.
