Synopsis


The LATITUDE compilation is a result of the Goethe-Institut Pan African Short Film Competition which began in 2007. The perception of Africa in cinema is often clichéd. It’s either war, destruction, AIDS, corruption and famine, or happy, dancing, singing people in rural settings. These young filmmakers are breaking the clichés, finding their voices and challenging conventions. These films cover all genres -from Science Fiction to Comedy to Melodrama to Thriller to Drama to Satire.
