The 2016 New York African Film Festival Presents: Tchindas
NOTICE: Advance ticket holders must arrive 15 minutes prior to showtime to be
guaranteed a seat.
Within a small, tropical Cape Verdean Island, the beloved Tchinda is hard at work preparing for a Carnival she hopes will capture the towns imagination. Despite her great reputation, Tchinda remains humble and every afternoon she happily tours the neighborhood to sell her best coxinhas, a classic Brazilian treat: delicious fried balls of chicken. Filmmakers Marc Serena and Pablo García Pérez de Lara have crafted a lush, perceptive documentary that at times feels akin to a fairy tale. The film reveals a hidden landscape tucked far away from the world we know, where trans inclusion and teamwork make up the fundamental structure of a truly magical community and culture.
