CAMÉRA D'AFRIQUE

(AFRICAN CINEMA : FILMING AGAINST ALL ODDS)

Year of production : 1983 Country : FRANCE, TUNISIA Length : 98 minutes

Synopsis

After several decades of colonial cinema using Africa as an exotic setting–often denying humanity and dignity to its people–and 70 years after the invention of the cinema, freshly independent Africans take hold at long last of that movie-camera which had been forbidden to them for so long. Despite a total lack of means and infrastructures, and filming against all odds, using by chance any African or foreign support, they try to show African reality in its variegated forms, as it is seen at last through African eyes. CAMERA D’AFRIQUE, the result of a personnal shooting that took place over ten years, recalls the early 20 years of those new “authors”, created in Sub-Saharan Africa, which bear witness to an amazing thirst to show and to express themselves, never extinguished to this day.
