This episode is all about film and TV starting with some of the latest titles coming out of Africa that we’re excited about. We then briefly touch on Hollywood before heading up to China.
The Encounter by Trino Studios
Set in 1967 during the Nigeria-Biafra civil war, an imprisoned Emmanuel Ifeajuna is summoned by Biafran Commander-in-Chief for one last conversation, one last encounter.
Based on the short story “The Encounter” by the historian, Henry Onyema.
Jongo (South African Superhero Series)
This is the first mainstream African superhero TV series. It should have launched in South Africa in December 2015, but we can’t find any sign of that on distributor Discover Digital’s website or social media channels. The trailer looks promising though. Get more details at the producer’s website.
