Mother of George, Andrew Dosunmu (U.S., 2012)
Mother of George, a film emblematic of a “new renaissance moment for American black cinema” (Village Voice) is set against the backdrop of Brooklyn’s Yoruba Nigerian community. A joyful wedding celebration (filmed with an attention to color and costume on par with a Bollywood film) unites Ayodele (Jim Jarmusch favorite Isaach De Bankolé) and Adenike (Danai Gurira, The Walking Dead), but divisions begin to appear when the couple is unable to conceive a child.
