Still image from the film Afrique, je te plumerai
It is 1990, 30 years after Africa’s wave of independences. The end of the Cold War and the dramatic political changes taking place around the world inspire a generation of young Africans to take to the streets to challenge one-party states and their attendant nepotism, corruption, and economic failure. In a daring free style construction, Afrique, je te plumerai mixes past and present, establishing a link between yesterday’s colonial experience and today’s violence and corruption in Cameroon, the only African country colonized by three European powers. In French with English subtitles. Director Jean-Marie Teno is scheduled to be present. (Digital Presentation)
