News & Interviews for Mama Africa: Growing Up Urban
Critic Reviews for Mama Africa: Growing Up Urban
It understands, in a way that speaks forcefully enough about the mechanisms of poverty to transcend the rather simplistic filmmaking.
Mama Africa pretty much delivers on that promise. It does give you a peek. The main problem being that it's only a peek.
A worthy idea, but the uninspired scripts, acting and direction never rise above the level of an after-school TV special.
The warnings to resist temptation in this film ... are blunt and challenging and offer no easy rewards for staying clean.
