Governor's Island: African Film Festival Celebration

The whole scene looked like a quilt, pieced together with vibrant patterns and shapes all moving and flowing together in rhythm to the beat of the drum.

This past weekend I went with a few friends to a celebration for the African Film Festival on Governor's Island. I had never been out there before, but this was a great way to experience the beautiful island for the first time. There was tasty food, huge shady lawns, and a big African dance class with several groups of drummers and choreographers from different places in Africa.

Everyone was having a wonderful time letting loose.

The dancers' bodies were moving so fast, my hands could barely keep up.  
One beautiful woman had the face of a lioness, and danced pretty ferociously too.
