Join us for the final screening of the African Film Festival, The African Who Wanted to Fly.

First discovering Kung Fu after watching the film Big Boss, a young Gabonese child sets off for China at the age of just 15. Under the tutelage of Grand Master Meng Huifang, this child would eventually become number one in an art form which had previously never counted an African in its midst. Based on the incredible true story of Luc Bendza, this film follows his journey from a tiny Gabonese village all the way to China, where he would eventually become a world Kung Fu champion.
