A documentary film directed by Julien MALASSIGNÉ
African film productions represent only 3% of the world cinema market. At the beginning of the 21st century this is a terrible observation. Les yeux des autres, la tête ailleurs is questioning the causes and consequences of this low production and distribution of African images both on the continent and internationally.
Behind this cinematographic problematic hides many political, economic, social and cultural stakes with devastating consequences. A question arises: what role should be attributed to cinema for societies and people who have so little access to their own image?
A cry of hope and resistance is emerging so that Africa and Africans can once again become masters of their imaginations, masters of their destinies.
