After You Watch 'Beasts Of No Nation' On Netflix, Check Out These 10 Movies Of The African Diaspora

To mark the recent premiere of 'Beasts of No Nation,' here are 10 more African films currently available on Netflix.


Trevor Noah: African American

Directed by: Ryan Polito

Starring: Trevor Noah

Trevor Noah skyrocketed to a new level of fame when he was named John Stewart's Daily Show successor, but the South African funnyman had already been cracking up audiences worldwide with his acclaimed stand-up shows. In the 2013 special African American, Trevor offers his trademark brand of sarcastic and mocking commentary on a wide range of issues affecting both Africans and African-Americans. From hackneyed UNICEF ads about starving children to ignorant questions he's been asked by Americans ("How did you get to America?" "Do you guys have waves in Africa?" "Have you ever had AIDS?") nothing and no one is safe. —PP
