Husband-and-wife team Reinaldo Barroso-Spech and Diarah N’Daw-Spech created the African Diaspora Film Festival, aiming to redesign the black cinema experience and introduce new, diverse audiences to the work. Over the past decade they’ve done just that by featuring up-and-coming indies like The First Rasta (2010) and The Story of Lovers Rock (2011). This year promises some buzz-worthy selections as well, such as tonight’s opening-night feature, Supremacy, a thriller starring Danny Glover as a patriarch forced to rely on his wit to save his family after they are held hostage by a high-ranking white supremacist — based, horrifyingly enough, on true events. On a lighter note, catch this year’s centerpiece feature, Between Friends, a rom-com about reunited college pals in contemporary South Africa.
