Muna Moto / The Child of Another
Directed by Jean-Pierre Dikongué-Pipa
Heralded as a classic social realist African masterpiece, and an African Romeo and Juliet tale, Muna Moto tells the story of Ngando and Ndomé. Although they are deeply in love, Ngando cannot afford the traditional dowry to marry his now pregnant Ndomé. Against his better judgment, he asks his childless uncle (despite four wives) for help. Soon, a convenient marriage is arranged, but not to the liking of anyone.
In Bassa, Douala and French with English subtitles.
African Film Heritage Series
This special Wednesday evening series is courtesy of the African Film Heritage Project, a branch of Martin Scorsese’s The Film Foundation/World Cinema Project, which is dedicated to locating and preserving 50 classic African films, some thought lost and others thought beyond repair. We are pleased to show these films in conjunction with The Film Foundation’s 30th year anniversary.
