This is great!

Unlike Vol 1, which you had to purchase to watch, Focus Features has decided to made Vol 2 of its Africa First Shorts Program films available on Hulu, for *free* (of course, you have to still watch Hulu's expected commercial interruptions; but I think most of you would prefer that to having to actually whip out your credit/debit cards).

All 5 shorts are now available on Hulu to watch, so get to them all below.

But first, a quick recap... I saw Vol 2 last year actually (except for 1 of them - A Good Catholic Girl), and I felt that Vol 2's group of shorts was stronger than Vol 1. Not that the freshman class of the program, which included Wanuri Kahiu's much talked about sci-fi film Pumzi, was weak. Certainly not that at all. Collectively, Vol 2's films were just more impressive to me. I recall walking out of the theater really energized by what I saw, and I was very much (and still am) appreciative of the program, and all the young African filmmakers it's given and continues to give opportunities to; and I looking forward to watching it grow.

The 4 short films, each 20-30 minutes long are: Rungano Nyoni's Mwansa The Great (Zambia - photo above), Matthew Jankes's Umkhungo (South Africa), Daouda Coulibaly's Tinye So (Mali), Stephen Abbott's Dirty Laundry (South Africa), and, the one I didn't get to see, Matt Bishanga's A Good Catholic Girl (Uganda).

Watch all 5 of them below, in exactly that order:

    I've been looking forward to seeing more of these. They need to go ahead and box them all as a DVD set.

    Hey Emmanuel, Vol 1 is already on DVD. My guess is that Vol 2 will come soon after the Hulu run.
