Portland Community College, in celebration of Black History Month, presents “Africa through African lenses,” a hybrid virtual/in-person festival.
The festival runs February 2-March 2, is free and open to the public.
The Cascade Festival of African Films shows us Africa through the eyes of Africans, rather than a vision of Africa packaged for Western viewers. The films celebrate Africa’s achievements, expose its failures, and reveal possibilities for a hopeful future. Although the films cannot represent an entire continent, we hope to encourage American viewers to become interested in and study African cultures.
