Detailed view

  • A compelling 'counter reading' of Cameroonian History from Colonialism to contemporary repression.
  • This film is available in two versions, with English subtitles and with French subtitles

    In the early Nineties, thirty years after the African independence in the Sixties, and as the Cold War was coming to an end, heralding dramatic political changes around the world, a generation of young Africans was ready to break with the past. Denouncing the one-party state and its attendant nepotism, corruption and economic failure, they took their anger to the streets and challenged their dictatorial governments.
    In a mixture of poetry and irony, Teno accompanies this struggle with a film that mixes past and present, establishing a cause and effect between yesterday’s colonial experience and today’s violence and corruption.

    Trente années après les indépendances, alors que d’importants bouleversements s’opèrent dans d’autres parties du monde, une génération de jeunes africains veulent en découdre avec les “partis uniques” et leurs corollaires tels la corruption généralisée, le népotisme et la faillite économique.
    Le film mélange le présent et le passé, établissant un lien de cause à effet entre la violence coloniale d’hier et le présent insupportable.
