This list of top 10 movies about Africa
reflects my personal taste and includes classics like The African Queen
, and more recent movies like Blood Diamond

by Sorious Samura. All of the films are worth watching if you are interested in traveling to Africa. Knowing a little more about the history

There are lots of African movies made each year which we don't get to see because of a lack of distribution. Luckily, a company called Africast now enables you to download TV series and movies from Africa directly on to your computer. If you're a fan of Nollywood, Nigeria's booming film industry, check out Africanmovies.com for the latest releases.
