Summary
A voyage in search of the illusion of modernity, which haunts Cameroonian society. A Trip to the Country questions, sometimes ironically, the notion of development associated in Africa with a tropical modernity which can be summarized as follows: Everything from Europe is modern, while all things local are archaic and must be discarded. After the ravages of slavery and colonialism, the African continent now faces another threat: educational systems, which perpetuate inferiority complexes and dependence vis-à-vis the West. This self-destructive mentality also establishes a social hierarchy placing modern city dwellers above backward rural people. A Trip to the Country is a personal reflection on our obsession with modernity, our desire to conform to a certain model of development, which ironically turns our backs on the possibility of real progress, and perpetuates our dependency to Humanitarian so-called aid. Camera: Jean-Marie Teno and Moussa Diakite Sound: Lardia Thombiano Music: Ben's Belinga and Marianne Entat Editor: Christiane Badgley
