Bye Bye Africa (Chad, 1998)

A film by Mahamat Saleh Haroun. In this reflexive docu-drama about the difficulties of making films in Africa (the first feature film from Chad), an exiled film director returns to Chad after the death of his mother. There he discovers, as a result of wars, that motion picture theaters have been abandoned in favor of makeshift video theaters often in private homes. Haroun visits a producer who suggests that he make a film using a video camera and concludes that the important thing is to continue to produce films no matter what the circumstances. In French and Arabic with English subtitles. 86 min.
