If you're in the New York area, we hope you're enjoying the African Diaspora Film Festival, which is screening 63 films at four different venues over the next few weeks.

Here are a few highlights from today's schedule:

LET'S MAKE MONEY!

Thalia Theatre @ 7PM

"Let's Make Money! is a dramatic and visual feast depicting the high  flyers of global finance that fueled the economic meltdown juxtaposed  powerfully with those around the planet who pay the price--the world's  poor and struggling middle classes. The film follows the money--our  money--as it travels through the global casino of financial markets and  reckless speculation. Essential viewing for anyone who wants to  understand the roots of the global financial crisis."  - Chuck Collins, Senior Scholar, Institute for Policy Studies, co-Author, The Moral  Measure of the Economy.

Austria, 2008, 106min, in English and German with English subtitles, Erwin Wagenhofer, dir. Q&A after the screening.

Part of Globalization, Health and the Environment Program.

FISH ABOVE SEA LEVEL

College, Columbia University - The Chapel (175 Zankel Hall) @ 8:30pm

Talal, a young Ammani professional,discovers upon his father's death  that he is penniless. His only way out is to sell a farmhouse once owned  by his late father in a village by the Dead Sea. At the village he  meets Dawoud, a young farmer who lives in the farmhouse. Before Talal  can do   anything with the house, Dawoud's approval is essential. A road  movie about an affluent young urban professional and a young village  farmer who share a common history and roots and find themselves unwilling participants in another cycle of history that pits the  prosperity of one against the survival of another.

Jordan, 2011, 78 min, dramedy, Arabic with English subtitles, Mr. Hazim Bitar, dir.

Shown with Zebu and the Photo Fish.

BLOODY ROOTS &  CURACAO

Teachers College @ 6PM

CURACAO

US Premiere

A fascinating documentary that explores the  awkward and strained interaction between the locals on the Island of  Curaçao and the Dutch community that lives there. The Dutch live in  their own world, getting together at segregated parties and on golf  courses on private resorts. The blacks and whites hardly ever speak to  each other. The manager of a local supermarket develops a training  program focusing on the question: "Why do Antilleans refuse to be  leaders?" Slowly but surely, it becomes clear that the Dutch don't have  the faintest idea about their role in the island's past, let alone its  effect on contemporary society.

Curaçao, The Netherlands, 2010, 75 min, Doc, Dutch and Papiamento with English subtitles, Sarah Vos, dir.

Shown with

BLOODY ROOTS

US Premiere

Tue. Nov. 29 @ 6pm - Teachers College

Viviane, a Guadeloupian woman, about forty, lives alone in a project in a Paris suburb. She decides that her cardiac mother who stayed in Guadeloupe  should come live with her in France so she may take care of her. But,  almost totally isolated, her mother has difficulty adapting to her new  life. In the small apartment, Viviane gradually traps her mother in a  strange world, invaded by roots of tropical plants: a forest without  exit.

Guadeloupe, 2011, 28 min, Drama, French, Marie-Claude Pernelle, dir.
