Africa Representa

Harald Friedl

A travelogue as intimate and focused as a personal essay oscillating between an outside and an inside gaze: on his quest to recover the lost images of his early childhood a tourist from the African diaspora (starring Kenyan actor Sidede Onyulo) encounters a country steeped in ancient magic, facing the twenty-first century with the humour, verve, and ingenuity of its proverbial "Mosquito That Wanted to Marry Man's Ear." AFRICA REPRESENTA is a journey between the city and adobe huts, an encounter with the unknown in the contrasts of an area in Tanzania typical of sub-Saharan Africa: an old chief steeped in the world of magic; two young rappers trying to make it in the city; young Muslim women who feel they're kept like livestock; young Masai warriors who see their future in computer courses, not in their old traditions. The traveller's quest to comprehend reaches the limits of the humanly possible--for "understanding life is like looking into the sun. Far too much light will hit the searching eyes."

Between Hope and Fear

IRIN

Millions of civilians fled their homes in Southern Sudan during 21 years of war with the north. Now, three years after a peace accord was signed, thousands are returning every week. But there´s not much to come home to: jobs are very scarce, infrastructure is almost non-existent and fear of renewed violence looms large in the minds of many returnees.

Between Hope and Fear follows on family´s journey home from neighbouring Uganda, where they had lived for years as refugees under constant threat of attack by the Lord´s Resistance Army. Until this Ugandan rebel group disarms, few in Southern Sudan will feel entirely safe.

Chef!

Jean- Marie Teno

In his most recent film, Chef!, Teno locates the roots of Africa's authoritarian regimes in the patriarchal family, reinforced by traditional kingship and the colonial experience. Teno insists that this film was not planned but imposed itself on him during a visit to his ancestral village, Bandjoun, in the Ghomala speaking region of Western Cameroon. He had gone to film dances dedicating a monument to King Kamga Joseph II, the filmmakers' great granduncle, but the ceremony soon turned into a celebration of one-man rule, in particular Cameroonian President Paul Biya's.

Teno bought a souvenir calendar listing "the rules and regulations of the husband in his home." These included: "The husband is always chief - even in bed;" or " If the husband strikes the wife while visitors are present, she must smile and pretend that nothing has happened; etc" Teno wryly observes that if every husband is a chief then Cameroon is a nation of 7 million chiefs. The director of the Association for the End of Violence to Women points out that the husbands' dominance over his wife is guaranteed not only by tradition, but by the French Civil Code of 1804 which is still operative in Cameroon, though long since revised in France.

Coffee to go

Andreas Gruber

Kaffee ist nach Erdöl der meistgehandelte Rohstoff der Welt und damit ein enormes Geschäft. Die grosse Frage ist jedoch, wie dieser Kuchen weltweit verteilt ist. Wer bekommt den Kuchen, wer die Brösel? Woher kommt der Kaffee und wer verdient daran? Der Film vermittelt in anschaulicher Weise, was jede Tasse Kaffee vom System der Globalisierung erzählt, das die Anbauländer in der Regel benachteiligt. Doch mit dem Fairen Handel gibt es eine gangbare Alternative. Gumutindo, eine kleine Genossenschaft von Kaffeebauern in Uganda, die handwerklich produziert, steht für¨ Alternativen zum konventionellen Kaffeehandel. Am Beispiel dieser Genossenschaft wird deutlich, wie alternative und faire Strukturen für die Produktion und im Handel aussehen können.

Contes cruels de la guerre

Ibéa Atondi and Karim Miské

Contes cruels de la guerre: Ibéa Atondi uses the story of a return to his home country, Congo-Brazzaville, to adopt an unusual viewpoint on the wars of contemporary Africa. Fascinated by the bloodthirsty madness of Mignon, a Cobra fighter destroyed by alcohol and drugs, the female narrator attempts to grasp the mechanisms that drove him and his companions to abandon all human dignity. No images of violence are used to evoke the horrors of war; this is done through use of metaphor to underpin the statements of victims and executioners.

Delta force

Glenn Ellis

Delta Force continues the story of the late Nigerian writer Ken Saro-Wiwa and the Ogoni people, and picks up where The Drilling Fields left off. It starts with a look back at the previous film and updates the story to include the unlawful arrest of Ken Saro-Wiwa and the subsequent implementation of Operation Restore in Ogoni land. This is a military campaign of terror waged against the Ogoni people in an attempt to restore oil production in their area. Delta Force also examines the massive international campaign organized to pressure Nigeria`s dictatorship into releasing Saro-Wiwa, who exposed corruption and injustice with his writings and his activism. Mr. Saro-Wiwa was nevertheless executed by the Nigerian government despite massive international appeals for clemency.  Much of the footage used in Delta Force was secretly shot by the Ogoni themselves.

The film won the Geneva International Television Award in 1996.

Fathers

Ermias Woldeamlak, Celine Gilbert, Amaka Igwe

Each of these three dramatic shorts from Tanzania, Nigeria and Ethiopia offers a critical look at the relationship between fathers and their children in contemporary Africa. Surrender shows the traditional face of paternal tyranny, a father controlling his son's life. In contrast, A Barber's Wisdom satirizes a modern father who compromises his children in his relentless pursuit of money. In The Father, the patriarch in question is ultimately the military dictatorship which terrorized Ethiopia in the '70s and '80s. The critique of fathers in these three films is reminiscent of the blistering indictment of patriarchy in post-independence Africa at the center of Ousmane Sembene's newest film.

Haramuya - Great African Films - Vol 1

Drissa Toure

This film will appeal to those who like to know more about exotic lands they will likely never visit. Ouagadougou (Wa-ga-doo-goo), the capital of Burkina Faso (formerly Upper Volta) is such a place. A variety of characters are introduced in this tale of ordinary folks trying to get by in a Third World country. The pace of the film is slow, just as it appears daily life is in this locale. Not slow in the boring sense, but in the unhurried way of life that no doubt reflects an age-old culture in no rush to live like hectic big-city Westerners. Such a plot as there is involves a young Muslim's misadventures as he tries to find honest entry-level work. His father's religious community connections land him a job, but things start to go wrong immediately. This is a gentle family film with no violence, sex or foul language--and no special effects. Just a good story well told and well acted.

Homecoming

Norman Maake

Charlie, Thabo and Peter, three "MK" veterans from the armed branch of the African National Congress, return to post-apartheid South Africa in 1996 after years of exile.

Continuously hampered as he delves into the Government's files, his ensuing investigations provide shocking revelations of the identities of the traitors. Pared down from a successful mini series for the South African Broadcasting Corporation,Homecoming draws its plot from the real life experiences of acclaimed filmmaker and writer, Zola Maseko, a former "MK" soldier of the ANC.

La tête dans les nuages

Jean- Marie Teno

In his film 'La tête dans les nuages' ('Head in the Clouds') Jean-Marie Teno criticizes the ills of the modern world and the regression of African societies. This short documentary shows the capital of the Cameroon, Yaondé, but might equally show other African cities: heaps of rubbish lie at the edge of streets, academics are out of work, officials unpaid, corruption is the norm, and misery everywhere. For Jean-Marie Teno 'colonization, civilization, independence, then humanitarian talk are merely excuses and theatrical gestures to ensure that Africa remains the place which foreign powers can exploit with a good conscience.'

Mémoire entre deux rives (Memory between Two Shores) - Memory Between Two Shores

Frédéric Savoye, Kader

Memory between Two Shores tells the story of the French colonisation of the Lobi area . No village or family in this region of South-western Burkina Faso will ever forget. Juxtaposed with the written records of the administrators, the oral tradition calls up a century of history, from the arrival of the first Europeans to the present day. The vitality of the spoken word also bears witness to the legacy of this painful past, at the individual, social and religious level. From the past to the present, from the spoken word to the writings of the colonial administrators, «Memory between two Shores» is as much Lobi’s quest for identity as a reflection upon «France the Great Civiliser».

Monday's Girls

Ngozi Onwurah

Monday's Girls explores the conflict between modern individualism and traditional communities in today's Africa through the eyes of two young Waikiriki women from the Niger delta. Although both come from leading families in the same large island town, Florence looks at the iria women's initiation ceremony as an honor, while Azikiwe, who has lived in the city for ten years, sees it as an indignity. Ngozi Onwurah, director of such feminist classics as Coffee Coloured Children and Body Beautiful, herself an Anglo-Nigerian, turns a wry but sympathetic eye on the cross-cultural confusions. The five week long iria ritual is overseen by post-menopausal women headed by the redoubtable Monday Moses (hence the title.) The girls are paraded bare-breasted before the entire community so their nipples can be examined to determine whether they are still virgins. They are then confined to the "fattening rooms," their legs immobilized in copper impala rings, where they are pampered and fed. Finally, the girls, now women, are presented to society, wearing yards of fabric around their waists indicating each family's wealth - and suggesting pregnancy. The film traces the girls' contrasting responses to each stage of the ritual. Florence, who is Monday's granddaughter, comments at the end of the ceremony, "I'm not fat, but I am grown up now," but even she decides to postpone marriage until she completes her education. Azikiwe refuses to bare her breasts and, as a result, her father is fined by the outraged villagers and she is sent back to the city in disgrace. She concludes: "There are some traditions people should forget." Monday's Girls calls into question the idea of a single, "ethnographically correct" representation of tradition. Rituals are revealed as fluid, polysemous texts, social contracts continuously renegotiated between individuals and communities. For millions of Africans like Azikiwe, tradition is increasingly seen as a matter of individual choice not social coercion.

Neglected diseases (Opomíjené choroby)

Kala Azar is a deadly, yet treatable parasitic disease which affects half a million people a year across the world. It is endemic in many parts of India and east Africa, including the Pokot region of northwest Kenya, where international medical charity Médecins Sans Frontières (MSF) has had great success with a treatment programme. But lack of access to information and adequate medical care in much of Kenya allows Kala Azar to kill thousands of people every year.

Elephantiasis affects millions of people worldwide and although it can be prevented, the disease has no cure and access to treatment in the developing world is hampered by stigma and poor health infrastructure.

Nodding disease first emerged in the Sudan in the 1980s. A neurological disease characterized by episodes of nodding and seizures, it now affects a growing number of children in Uganda, Sudan and Tanzania. There is little understanding of the disease, no known treatment and no cure.

O Heroi

Zézé Gamboa

The Hero (O Herói) is the story of Angola, a nation torn apart by forty years of uninterrupted war, and now trying imperfectly but courageously to piece itself back together. It is also the story of a city, Luanda, trying to absorb the millions of people displaced by civil strife and global economic change.

Zézé Gamboa, director of the film, has stated that he considers himself in the camp of African filmmakers who see their work as contributing directly to the task of national reconstruction. “The Hero is a universal story. In Central Europe, Latin America, Africa and in all the places where there is or there was war, hundreds of thousands must deal with the stigma, try to survive and become a part of post-war society. The aim of this movie is to show children - the former instruments of war—that it is possible to live in peace.”The central character of the film, the hero of the title, is Vitório. We meet him at a hospital where he has been waiting for months for a prosthetic leg to replace the one he lost after stepping on a landmine, ironically in the last months of Angola’s civil war. He was impressed into service at age fifteen while at a seminary and has been fighting for twenty years since. A doctor finally takes pity on him and gives him a new leg; Vitório is compared to someone beginning a new life. But the decorated war veteran encounters little sympathy and much prejudice for an unskilled soldier with a prosthetic limb as he scours Luanda looking for a job…

Taking Root: The Vision of Wangari Maathai (Kořeny: Vize Wangari Maathaiové)

Lisa Merton, Alan Dater

Three decades ago, Wangari Maathai suggested to rural women in her native Kenya that they plant trees for firewood and to stop soil erosion — an act that grew into a nationwide movement to safeguard the environment, defend human rights, and fight government injustice. The tree-planting groups that formed gave the women a reason to come together and become involved in resolving their communities’ challenges.

Taking Root: The Vision of Wangari Maathai tells the story of Kenya’s Green Belt Movement and follows Maathai, the movement’s founder and the first environmentalist and African woman to win the Nobel Prize. Maathai discovered her life’s work by reconnecting with the rural women with whom she had grown up. They told her they were walking long distances for firewood, and that clean water was scarce. The soil was disappearing from their fields, and their children were suffering from malnutrition. “Well, why not plant trees?” she suggested.

Maathai soon discovered that tree planting had a ripple effect of empowering change. In the mid-1980s, Kenya was ruled by the repressive regime of Daniel arap Moi, whose dictatorship outlawed group gatherings and the right of association. In tending their nurseries, women had a legitimate reason to gather outside their homes and discuss the roots of their problems. They soon found themselves working against deforestation, poverty, ignorance, embedded economic interests, and government corruption; they became a national political force that helped to bring down the country’s 24-year dictatorship.

Using archival footage and first-person accounts, the film documents dramatic political confrontations of 1980s and 1990s Kenya and captures Maathai’s infectious determination and unwavering courage through in-depth conversations with the film’s subjects.

Traces, empreintes de femmes

Katy Lena Ndiaye

The wall paintings of the Kassenas women in Burkina Faso, near the border with Ghana, are famous for the beauty of their patterns and the harmony of their colours. In looking at this subject, Katy Lena Ndiaye has chosen to compare and contrast tradition with modernity, seen through the intertwined portraits of three old women and their "grand-daughter", whom they are initiating in their ancestral art. She has made a film whose aesthetic is fully under control, a genuine portrait of an artistic community preoccupied with the issue of how to hand down traditions, of education and memory in an Africa undergoing fundamental change.

Uganda's Forgotten Emergency - The unholy terror of the Lord's Resistance Army

The documentary focuses on the tragic humanitarian impact of the conflict, and in particular highlights the vulnerability of children. The film illustrates how thousands of children walk many kilometers every evening to find shelter in the relative safety of towns or camps, for fear of being abducted by the rebels. In towns they sleep in public buildings or the street. These 'night commuters' of northern Uganda are a sober symbol of the terror at large in a conflict the Ugandan government and international community seem unable to end.
