Strolling

Dir. Cecile Emeke
2015, 50min

 

In this feature culled from her fascinating web series Strolling, Jamaican-British director Cecile Emeke sets out to discover the true meaning of the term “African diaspora,” traversing the globe—from Kingston to New York to Rome and beyond—to document the shared histories and struggles that connect her black, mostly millennial subjects. The result is both an eye-opening look at what it means to live as an often-invisibilized person in a majority-white society as well as an empowering meditation on the universality of the black experience.
