Although the turnout is expected to be lighter due to the ongoing writers’ and actors’ strikes, the Toronto International Film Festival will still feature an outstanding line-up of films, including some great new works from Africa. Incredibly diverse, the offerings range from fast-paced thrillers to adaptations of popular novels. Cameroonian-Belgian documentarian Rosine Mbakam makes her feature-length debut with Mambar Pierrette, a modest, slice-of-life drama that quietly observes the attempts of its heroine to exist within the patriarchal system in Douala.
