African film series presents “Yesterday” on Nov. 27

The Penn State Berks African Film Series will present the film “Yesterday” on Tuesday, Nov. 27, 2012, at 7 p.m. in room 101 of the Franco Building. This presentation is free and open to the public.

This 2004 film and HBO movie presents both a look at Zulu society and some of the issues surrounding AIDS in Africa. It tells the story of a young South African woman named Yesterday, who discovers that she is HIV positive. Her goal is to be able to survive long enough to see her daughter, Beauty, go to school.

The remaining films, “Shake Hands with the Devil,” “War Dance,” and “Endurance,” are scheduled for December 4, 6, and 11, respectively and will air at 7 pm in room 101, Franco Building. “War Dance” will air in room 151 Franco.

This African Film Series is sponsored by the Global Studies degree program at Penn State Berks. For more information, contact Dr. Randall Fegley, associate professor of history, at 610-396-6092 or via e-mail at RAF8@psu.edu.
