I also noted in my message to Mark Downey a few other films either about
FESPACO or that use the festival as a context in which to discussion African
"Ouaga" made in 1989 by Kwate Nee Owoo and Kwesi Owusu, presents a political
and social critique of African cinema history with interviews of several
African filmmakers as well as film clips.
"Fespaco 87" by Carolyn Sides (Caribbean Media Services) covers the events
of the festival as well as other activities that took place around
Ouagadougou. A portion of the documentary is also devoted to African
Diaspora participation at the festival.
"Africa World Cinema" (produced by Harry Cahill, World of Film Foundation,
1993), which is part of a series on world cinema, presents historical and
social perspectives on cinema in Africa. The events of the 1993 FESPACO are
highlighted. There are interviews with filmmakers, actors and other film
representatives. Film clips are also included.
