2014 Sundance Film Festival Predictions: Elizabeth Chai Vasarhelyi’s An African Spring

Last year we had a docu about the aftermath/current state of the Arab Spring (Jehane Noujaim’s The Square), so keeping with the same subject thematic, we could technically be following this up with An African Spring.
