Africa is a large and diverse continent that is full of history, promise, success, and challenges. Yet the popular media ignores most of this in its limited coverage. To better understand contemporary life in Africa, the class will screen and discuss a series of short documentaries. These documentaries offer a window into everyday life as seen through the eyes of African actors. The documentaries highlight the diversity of the African continent even as they explore themes and concerns with continent-wide resonance. This course provides an opportunity for students who are unfamiliar with the continent to be guided in their exploration by African artists and filmmakers. It also serves as a gateway for other regional studies courses in Government, Africana, History and other fields.
