Afrique 50 ans d'indépendance

Rating: 5 stars
Used in Course: Not used in course
Submitted by: Patricia Cummins (Faculty), Mar 12, 2014

African cinema is discussed in countries where there are festivals. Religion and education are other topics of discussion. Pop-up windows give us comments on socio-economic conditions and culture, and if we click on some of them they take us to new videos and interviews. A Mauritanian sociologist provides a series of interviews on human rights, ethnic divisions, the role of women, economic opportunity, and corruption in his country, and then he gives his optimistic vision of the future of Africa from political, socio-economic, and cultural perspectives. The African diaspora in Paris contributes significantly to Francophone art, music, film. The African diaspora also contributes to French identity, and we visit both the city of Paris and its suburbs where African immigrants are likely to live. Rural scenes are rare, with most interviews taking place in each nation’s capital.
