“An important film able to entertain and provoke thoughts; able to frighten the powers that being and consolidate a reputation of an indigenous cinema”, a local news agency, L’Arena di Verona said of Black Gold as it opened the 31st African film festival of Verona last night (11/11/2011).

The large hall of Cinema Stimate at the city centre of Verona was overcrowded as film lovers and other individuals passionate about African took out a time from their busy schedules to feel the African heat.

Notwithstanding the fact that Jeta still could not make it to the festival just yet, his success story is already be sang loud and clear in Verona.

This coming 9 days will be full of events around cultural and social issues about Africa; watch out.
