African Film Library

It is now on-line and offers access to many of the very best African cinema.  You can pay for and download African movies, with 24-hour access; here is a brief summary.  This is a landmark cultural achievement.  Even for many cultural omnivores, African cinema remains a largely untilled pasture.  Even Wikipedia does not have a good article on African cinema.  I've seen about thirty African films in my life and loved roughly twenty of them.  My advice is to select randomly or to pursue their recommended and "most popular" features.
