World premiere of "Bound: Africans versus African Americans" by Peres Owino at the 40th Seattle International Film Festival

World premiere of Bound: Africans versus African Americans by Peres Owino at the 40th Seattle International Film Festival

This documentary will look at those things that make us similar, what unifies us as opposed to what divides us. We can all agree we have been dealing with the latter for over 500 years. Peres Owino

Controversial and illuminating, this documentary from Kenyan-born Peres Owino uses testimonials to expose the seldom-discussed ways that Africans and African Americans view each other, and looks at the cultures’ shared history to foster mutual understanding.
