Synopsis

Without including any film clips from African cinema or interviews with helmers from the continent, writer-director Jean-Pierre Bekolo chooses for his survey to express issues of consumption and disregard by an overwhelming number of African moviegoers for its own native cinema. Bekolo's fictionalized thesis revolves around the conflict between two characters, Cinema and Cineast who literally fight over what kind of films African audiences should see: Hollywood action or "boring" indigenous films.
