Masterclass Rebranding Africa!
The thematic to be discussed during the masterclass is how art – films – from African filmmakers can be used to change the image of the African continent from the biased perspective of the Western media. Vamba Sherif (novelist, journalist and film critic) will host the masterclass where we will discuss the one-sided portrayal of the African continent. We consider our iAfrica Film Festival also a platform where we “rebrand” Africa with great movies from African filmmakers who tell their own story through their films.
We have been inspired by the following link of Akon talking about Rebranding Africa and Chimamanda Ngozi Adichie about ‘the danger of a single story’.
You are invited to discuss the subject with us!
