Come Back, Africa (1959) is the eye-opening film shot secretly in the streets of Sophiatown, South Africa. The film is not only legendary for its brave portrait of black township life under the racist apartheid regime, but it also put Miriam Makeba, AKA Mama Africa on the map. Milestone films will present a screening of Come Back Jan 27 – Feb 2 at Film Forum in New York City. Watch the trailer above and purchase tickets here.
