The 17th annual African Diaspora International Film Festival (ADIFF) will run from June 21 to 27 at Chicago’s Facets Cinematheque (1517 W. Fullerton Ave.) Established in 1993, the ADIFF is a minority-led, not-for profit international gala that presents, interprets and educates about films that explore the human experience of people of color all over the world. Along the way, it inspires imaginations, disrupt stereotypes, and help transform attitudes that perpetuate injustice.
This year’s program opens with Ali’s Comeback: The Untold Story by Art Jones and includes films set in the United States, Mexico, Haiti, Barbados, DRC, Jamaica, and Morocco.
