Black Film

discussion…

what are your thoughts on African-Americans or other Africans from the diaspora being cast in African films (i.e. Jennifer Hudson and Terrence Howards being cast as Winnie and Nelson Mandela)??

submit your thoughts

does it show that Black is Black and nationality doesn’t matter? does it lead to the erasure of African actors and actresses? does it alienate certain audiences? does it matter?
