In Between Stories


Young African artists in Toronto challenge the media's perspective on Africa.

 In Between Stories is a short documentary that features four young artists from the African diaspora communities in Toronto, Canada. This film touches on issues including media representations of Africa, experiences of second-generation immigrant youth and the role of storytelling. As they navigate through the different narratives that make up their lives, they share what it means to be a young African in today's society. Some of the music is performed by Kae Sun.
