Best movies & tv shows about Africa to watch so far in 2017

These are not our movies from Africa, but these are our movies about Africa. Unfortunately the two are not combined as much as they should be – at least not in the movies & tv shows that we watch in the Western world. We still watch mainly Africa in relation to poverty, war, aids & refugees, but it would also be great to see more films about just normal people in Africa. We have tried to include those as well.
