Malick Sidibé Documentaries
Cosima Spender’s roughly hourlong Dolce Vita Africana expands understanding of the joyous and wild times in which Malian photographer Malick Sidibé worked, capturing the sly wit of the photographer (and his portrait subjects) and rocking an irresistible Afro-pop soundtrack. Malick Sidibé: Portrait of the Artist as a Portraitist is an eight-minute short, featuring a recent interview with Sidibé suffused with his charm and sweetness. Go early so you can peruse the Cornell’s Sidibé exhibit beforehand, if you haven’t already. 7 pm Thursday; Cornell Fine Arts Museum, Rollins College, 1000 Holt Ave., Winter Park; free; 407-646-2526; rollins.edu/cfam.
