Trailers & Teasers for Berlinale Blackness

I am really trying to be cool about this Berlinale thing but I don’t do cool very well.  I finally put together the Berlinale Blackness guide and organized myself to see each one of the movies in addition to some festival standouts and recommendations that I have been told not to miss.

But since amy daily meditation has not yet made me patient, I decided to internet stalk the movies that I intend on watching and found some great trailers and teasers that made me more excited to see the movies.

Kwaku Ananse seems lush and sensual and I look forward to the high production quality and cinematography. I fell in love with this trailer.
