<i>Viva Riva!</i> opens in Philadelphia next week…

Just wanted to bring your attention to Viva Riva!, winner of six African Academy Awards and recipient of the 2011 MTV Movie Award for Best African Film.

The trailer is a bit conventional, presumably for the benefit of American audiences, but I’ve heard very good things.

Viva Riva! opens at the Ritz at the Bourse next Friday (6/24).
