Through the prism of questions of representation, we shall focus on this cinema's diversiﬁcation, both aesthetic or geographic, and continuities since the late 1980s. Alternating the viewing and analysis of a corpus of six contemporary feature ﬁlms, we shall study these works' cinematic form and content. Analysis will focus on the ﬁlms' themes in this period (history/memory ; women, exile, territoriality, diaspora, cultural hybridity), and their styles and genres (ﬁction, documentary, aesthetic diversiﬁcation). We shall also consider divergences between African auteur cinema and more recent Nollywood-esque productions. Required reading : Africa Shoots Back by Melissa Thackway.
