Short films from some of Africa's most compelling new talent. Pumzi: A futuristic film set in Nairobi, Kenya where the outdoors is extinct and has been outlawed. Saint Louis blues (also called N'Dar): A musical about a cross-country trip through Senegal in a battered taxi, as passengers sing their stories. The tunnel: In a small village in Zimbabwe terrorized by soldiers just after independence, a little girl creates a fantasy where her father escapes to freedom through a tunnel. The abyss boys: Two brothers who are abalone poachers in a South African fishing village try to escape their lives--but trying to escape causes their own destruction.
