FIAF’s Young Audience Program invites school groups to a special screening of Quartier Mozart. This program is presented in partnership with the New York African Film Festival.

Re-imagining several folk tales into a contemporary story, director Jean-Pierre Bekolo’s first feature film follows a curious girl who is magically transformed into a swaggering young man nicknamed “My Guy.” The combination of highly westernized characters and the charged folkloric atmosphere form a bold vision of today’s Africa.

The screening will be followed by a Q&A with director Jean-Pierre Bekolo.
