African Diaspora Film Festival 2011 Preview - "A Lot Like You" (Identity Investigations)

A film we profiled earlier this year will be making its NYC premiere at the upcoming African Diaspora Film Festival, which runs from November 25 – December 13.

The documentary is titled A Lot Like You, and its short story goes… Eliaichi Kimaro (also the film’s director) is a first-generation American filmmaker, with a Korean mother and a Tanzanian father, in search of her roots, tracing her father’s footsteps back to Mt. Kilimanjaro, where she discovers the beauty and brutality of the life he left behind, and translates that into her own personal legacy.

The 80-minute film screened as a work-in-progress at the San Diego Black Film Festival earlier this year, had its official world premiere at the Seattle International Film Festival in May, and will screen at the ADFF here in NYC on Thursday, December 8 at 8:30PM, at the Schomburg Center.

A Q&A with filmmaker Eliaichi Kimaro will follow the screening, along with a catered reception.
