Afrique 50 ans d'indépendance

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

Videos are in French without subtitles. They have country-specific videos for daytime and evening scenes in the following order: NIGER, CAMEROUN, SENEGAL, CHAD, BENIN, TOGO, BURKINA FASO, the AFRICAN DIASPORA IN FRANCE, DEMOCRATIC REPUBLIC OF CONGO, IVORY COAST, CONGO, GABON, MADAGASCAR, CENTRAL AFRICAN REPUBLIC, MAURITANIA, MALI. Daytime and evening scenes of daily life include background music associated with each country. Although we do see tourist attractions, we do get a good introduction to each country’s society and national identity. Local residents from different walks of life serve as tour guides (a “taxi sister” in Senegal, an architect in Chad, a car salesman in Togo, a student in Ivory Coast, and a midwife in the Central African Republic.) They give us their opinions, they explain what we observe on video, and they introduce us to others who discuss of a wide variety of topics that cover the period from independence in 1960 to the present.
