At the south end of Cherokee Street, tucked in the woven pattern of a record store, bakery, and the occasional Mexican restaurant sits a venue with a large open window and a stenciled sign that reads “Blank Space 2847 Cherokee.”
Peer through the large windows and you’ll see just that – a few chairs scattered around, a large wall of books and some boxes filled with vinyl.
Six years ago, the annual Africa World Documentary Film Festival debuted in St. Louis.
The festival is back at the Missouri History Museum and runs through Sunday, March 3rd. The three-day event features documentaries from filmmakers all over the world that are focused on social culture, sexual identity, mental disabilities, and more.
After showing in St. Louis, the films will travel to nine other venues across three continents.
