Friday, February 1, 2013 - 8:00pm - 9:30pm

Cinema Curiosa, a Traverse Area District Library film series dedicated to experimental, archival and uncompromising documentary titles that challenge and enrich, is pleased to present Come Back, Africa. Come Back, Africa chronicles the life of Zachariah, a black South African living under the rule of the harsh apartheid government in 1959.

“A heroic film… a film of terrible beauty, of the ongoing life it captured and of the spirit embodied by Rogosin and his fellow artists.” - Martin Scorsese
 
“Come Back, Africa is both history and legend, about real, ordinary people in extraordinary—and ongoing circumstances. The film remains complicated, interlacing stories and backstories, revealing at once adversities and strategies of survival.” - Cynthia Fuchs, PopMatters.com
 
“A timely and remarkable piece of cinema.” - Time Magazine
 
“The sound of the beating of the consciousness of a waking Africa." - Jonas Mekas, Village Voice
