Afro-Deutsch

AfroDeutsch (AfroGerman) is an intriguing short film (2002) by actor and musician Tyron Ricketts. The film describes what it’s like growing up in Germany as Afro-German in all dimensions. Ricketts (1973) was born in Austria to a Jamaican father and an Austrian mother. He now lives in Germany.


 
This film was made after the race-motivated killing of a Mozambican man, Alberto Adriano in 2000 by Neo Nazis. In response to this and other forms of racial violence, an Afro-German anti-racism group called Brothers Keepers was formed of which Tyron Ricketts is a member.

Although released in 2002 in Germany, the great news is that this film has recently been re-released with English subtitles.
