  • Camera d'Afrique: Twenty Years of African Cinema

    1983. France/Tunisia. Written, directed, and produced by Férid Boughedir. Soon after many African countries gained independence from colonial rule in the 1960s, African filmmakers took hold of the camera that had been denied them for so long. With scarce financial means and no technical infrastructure, these pioneers created an indigenous cinema that transformed their societies. Boughedir, a Tunisian filmmaker, journalist, and university professor, enriches this documentary with film clips and illuminating interviews with such important directors as Ousmane Sembène (Senegal), Med Hondo (Mauritania), and Ola Balogun (Nigeria). In French; English subtitles. 95 min.
