Africa at Sundance

There’s only film this year with an Africa-related theme in the official competition at the Sundance Film Festival: director Jennifer Arnold‘s documentary film, “A Small Act.”

Then there’s a special African shorts presentation. A friend who played role in selecting the shorts told me to watch out for Wanuri Kahiu, th director of “Pumzi,” about a water war somewhere in East Africa after World War III. The other shorts are “The Tunnel” set in Zimbabwe and “Saint Louis Blues.”

But that’s it.

Update: The trailer for “Pumzi”:
