86 minutes, 1999, Chad
Director: Mahamat-Saleh Haroun
in Arabic and French with English subtitles
ABOUT THE FILM
CRITICAL COMMENT
"While films with a similar approach fall into narcissism and even egocentrism, the director of Bye Bye Africa shows a remarkable sincerity and modesty in his film. His way of filming his hometown and compatriots enlightens us more about the reality of today's Africa than many other simplistic or 'folkloric' operettas."
Ferid Boughedir, Jeune Afrique
"Shot on digital video, Bye Bye Africa is unmistakably a work of cinema, meticulous in its craftsmanship and alive to the vital paradoxes of the medium. An anguished, self-reflexive meditation on the state of African cinema"
New York Times
"Bye Bye Africa carries on the tradition of Julio Espinosa's 1969 manifesto For an Imperfect Cinema which called for an end to the division between art and life. Using documentary technique, structuring a film within the film, he renders a picture of Chad that is part documentary part homecoming narrative."
