AfroPop: The Ultimate Cultural Exchange

125 Franco's Boulevard/Nora

Episode Guide »
125 Franco's Boulevard - For 40 years, Franco the Great used his talents to paint murals on the storefront roll-down gates on 125th Street in Harlem. Re-zoning legislation and a recently passed city law threaten to remove these gates, along with the art and culture painted on them. Who will step up and preserve Franco's art in the wake of big plans to change Harlem? Nora - "Nora" is based on true stories of Nora Chipaumire, a dancer born in Zimbabwe in 1965. In the film, Nora returns to the landscape of her childhood and journeys through some vivid memories of her youth: family dramas, difficult love affairs and militant politics. Using performance and dance, she brings her history to life in a swiftly moving poem of sound and image. Shot entirely on location in Southern Africa.
