Titre français : This is My Africa
Résumé français : This Is My Africa is a project that seeks to change the public dialogue surrounding Africa. By answering an 18-point questionnaire, we hear about the Africa that inhabits 18 people’s memories and personal perspectives. Through these interviewees, we learn about the Africa that has inspired, infuriated and delighted them. We will learn about their favorite food, songs, writers and artists. We will also learn about what they hope Africa will be like in 2060. There is a lot of unexpected passion in these testimonies and these views and ideas that are so passionately conveyed, come at an important time for the continent.

Featuring, amongst others, Yinka Shonibare, John Akomfrah, Chiwetel Ejiofor and Colin Firth.

Zina Saro-Wiwa, African continent/Nigeria/UK, 2008, 47 min.
