Black Stories – level 2

21-09-2020 07:00

After the death in May of a US Black man, George Floyd, many film companies focused on Black people. Kweli TV is a streaming service that focuses only on Black artists, film, and documentaries.

Since April, the number of people who subscribe to KweliTV has doubled. The founder and CEO of KweliTV is very happy. He says that it is great to see so many people interested in Black culture.

However, people are not only interested only in the US. The ´Black Panther´ movie is about the fictional African country of Wakanda, and many people got interested in African stories when they saw the movie.

However, for African filmmakers, it is not so easy to make a movie that is successful globally. African companies do not get as much money as US or Chinese companies.

Difficult words: founder (the person who starts a company), fictional (something that exists only in a book or film), globally (in all of the world).

You can watch the original video in the Level 3 section.
