African American Film Critics Association Names ‘The Woman King’ as Best Film of 2022

The African American Film Critics Association has released its list of the best films of 2022, topped by The Woman King.

The Gina Prince-Bythewood film stars Viola Davis and tells the story of the Agojie all-female army of fierce warriors. The movie also stars John Boyega, Lashana Lynch, Sheila Atim and Thuso Mbedu.

The Black Panther sequel, Wakanda Forever, took the No. 2 spot; followed by Chinonye Chuku’s Till, about how Mamie Till-Mobley turned her grief over the lynching of her 14-year-old son into activism; and the Sidney Poitier documentary Sidney.

“The best films of this year prove that diverse stories — the true and the fantastical — are not only important to the culture but are equally important to the movie-making business,” AAFCA president and co-founder Gil Robertson said in a statement. “Black films which make an impact on our minds and hearts are also making a sizable impact at the box office. Our top film, The Woman King, bridges the gap between telling important, heartfelt stories, and providing an entertaining experience for movie-going audiences.”
