Dakar, November 18 (APS) – A total of 59 films from 32 countries around the world will be featured at the Dakar Film Meetings (RECIDAK) scheduled for November 22 and 28 in the capital of Senegal. APS organizers.
Thirty foreign directors and twenty local directors will paritate on an event that will be opened by Prime Minister Mouhammad Boun Abdallah Dionne on Wednesday in the Dakar Grand Theater, said Baba Diop, Program Committee President RECIDAK.
& # 39; & # 39; RECIDAK is not a Senegalese-Senegalese festival. It was necessary to work open on all continents through a very wide cinema with various films, a diverse theme, "he explained during an interview with APS.
"We must break this prejudice that usually people who have not seen many African films called them a byproduct of the world film. It's a fake," he said, saying that if that were the case, the continent would never have an Oscar.
"Alain Gomis' movie + Felicite + was at the Oscars, the centerpiece of attention + was the salmon + Mozambique train Luciano Azevedo, as well as the other South African production," Diop said.
"There is no complex layer, we have a cinema at a height. African cinema is a part of the world film, enriched by the vision of the seventh art," said an art critic, reminding RECIDAK of an African festival "where all geographical areas are presented."
The program includes African, African and African-speaking Africa, with renowned directors whose films have already proven their worth. For example, he informs, Angolan Zeze Gamboa's "Big Kilapi" movie, or "African Storm" by Beninian Silvester Amoussou.
He also quoted among others the "Rumors of the Water" by the late Tunisian director Tajaeb Louhichi, who has shot portraits of Joe Ouakam, Oumou Si, several times in Senegal.
The program features films from India, Caribbean, Latin America and Europe, including Belgium and France.
In this film department, three areas of exchange are planned: meetings, master class, which serve as a framework for exchanging between the old and the new generation next to other workshops.
Projection sites are the existing cinemas in Dakar, including the Ousmane Sembene Magic Land, Canal Olimpia and the French Institute Theater, Empire Cinema.
Open Sessions are organized by organizers at Rufiskue and Guediavaie and in Liberty 6 Women's Prison.
