My short film from DR Congo, type suggestions



I 'm currently in post-production on a short film I shot in the Democratic Republic of Congo - a portrait of three heroic Congolese women.
However, I have been struggling with typographic choices, choosing fonts.

I'd love it if you would take a look at the (VERY INCOMPLETE) first cut, and give me suggestions on fonts for titles and subtitles:

I tried out different "African style fonts" for the main title, but they all looked stereotypical and wrong. I much prefer what I call "respectful fonts" that emphasize the heroic aspect of these ladies, but it would still be nice to get something organic in there.
I considered hand painted fonts, but haven't found anything good.

Need help/suggestion for similar magazine display typefaces!


Hello! I've just seen this beautiful typeface, and I'm looking for a similar font for use in a magazine as a display/titles typeface. Which typefaces are similar to "Platform"? It is beautiful!


Thank you!
