TUN/FRA | 1983 | Documentary | dir. Férid Boughédir

Shown in the official selection in Cannes in 1983 and again in 2019 in its restored version, Caméra d’Afrique is a pioneering documentary looking back on twenty years of independent African cinema, far from the images of colonial cinema using Africa as an exotic setting, and 70 years after the invention of cinema. Despite a total lack of means and infrastructures, these emerging filmmakers tried to show African reality and stories through their own eyes.

Filmed over ten years, Caméra d’Afrique bears witness to an amazing thirst of Sub-saharan filmmakers to create new images and have their own voice.
