Dedicated to the dissemination and distribution of black cinematographies and, in particular, productions from Africa and its diaspora, the online platform Array decided to make part of its collection available for free.
The initiative, called #ARRAYMatinee Series, will show its film programming online for free until the end of May.
Founded in 2010 by American director Ava DuVernay – responsible for award-winning works such as the 13th Amendment and Eyes that Condemn – the platform also functions as an artistic collective and independent film distributor. The selected features range from fiction to documentary and come from countries like South Africa, Ghana, and Liberia. The films have passed through several international festivals and are distributed globally through the platform.
Every Wednesday until May 13th and viewers will be able to “watch and tweet” using the hashtag #ArrayMatinee.
