Farewell Amor is the feature directorial debut of Ekwa Msangi, a Tanzanian-American filmmaker. 17 years after he was forced to leave his wife and daughter in Angola, lead character Walter reunites with them as they join him in his new life in New York, U.S.A. Of course, much has changed and the film follows the journey of these three back to each other, back to becoming a family again. The film is a fine example of deeply personal, fully human, intergenerational storytelling that also hones in the American immigrant experience.
