About Afrique, je te plumerai (Africa, I Will Fleece You)

Year Released:
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)
