    Default Rebelle (War Witch) - Movie from Quebec nominated at the Oscars

    Has anyone seen that movie? My friend Emmanuel was working on the set in the DRC as the artistic director.

    It has been nominated in the Foreign Language category at the Oscars ceremony this weekend.

    They have apparently also managed to get a visa for the main actress, so she could fly in from the DRC to attend the ceremony.

    I hope they win!

    I always enjoy African films and novels or as in this case, films set in Africa. I just finished a great Nigerian novel called "Graceland" by Chris Abani. It's about a teenager named Elvis growing up in a Lagos slum.
