Feeling nostalgic for World Cup fanaticism? Yes, its been a few long months since we got to crowd the bars at 10 a.m. and have that be acceptable. Now the New York African Diaspora International Film Festival is providing a chance to relive the euphoria of worldwide soccer competition. Today, catch Africa United, the story of three kids who walk 3,000 miles from Rwanda to South Africa for the World Cup. Their ambition makes us feel a little guilty about that whole bar-in-the-morning thing. The rest of the fest features a mix of classic and contemporary films focusing on people of African descent, with many New York premieres, parties, and panel discussions. Africa United screens today at 1 (with Q&A)
