About The Film

It was February in Missoula, Montana.The Big Sky Documentary Film Festival. And it was a million degrees below zero. Until I walked into the theater to see Renga for the West. What I saw on screen made me truly forget the cold outside!

Renga for the West is a sparkling 40-minute short that manages to capture a whole lot of the joy, energy and heartache of the modern African experience. It’s the first in a series of films being made by African refugees who’ve landed in the Big Sky State, telling vibrant, poetic stories of home, of long and difficult journeys and of life in a new and very foreign place.

The film features the amazing music of refugee Joel Makeci, and he and his band will be on stage after our screening for a live set of African music that’s going to bring down the house!

I’ll host this FREE LA Film Festival community screening. Get your tickets today!
