Netflix has launched its Made in Africa collection, a curated list of African series, films and docs aimed at celebrating Africa Month and showing the streamer’s commitment to the continent and its creatives.
Lovers of African stories will be able to watch more than 100 titles of older licensed films and shows as well as Netflix originals including Queen Sono, Jerusalema, King of Boys, Lionheart, Mokalik, Oscar-winning Tsotsi, Uncovered, The Wedding Party and Tjovitjo, plus documentaries like Leonardo DiCaprio’s The Ivory Game and Oscar-nominated Virunga.
Ben Amadasun, director of licensing and coproductions for Africa at Netflix, said: “This collection includes Queen Sono – our first Netflix original series – and as well as films like Catching Feelings, Chief Daddy, 93 Days and Merry Men. We hope that by making these ‘Made in Africa’ titles easily available we will help ensure they are watched around the world.”
The Made in Africa collection is now available at netflix.com/madeinafrica.
