Viva Riva – “Best African Movie”

By | June 10, 2011

A movie set in Kinshasa, by Congolese director Djo Tunda Wa Munga, Viva Riva last week won the Best Africa Movie at the MTV movies award. I saw an interview with the director on Al Jazeera’s movie programme The Fabulous Picture Show (you should consider watching the programme. It mostly features non-blockbuster European, Middle-Eastern and (sometimes) African movies, and it is available both on Youtube and as a video podcast). The edition in which Djo Tunda Wa Munga appears is below, just forward it to minute 9.40 and you’ll hit the beginning of the interview/screening of the movie.
