African Filmmaking

This chapter focuses on filmmaker, Mahamat Saleh Haroun. Haroun was born in Chad in 1963. He moved to France and studied first filmmaking at the CLCF in Paris and then journalism at the IUT in Bordeaux. He worked for five years in print journalism and radio before returning to filmmaking, working from a base in Paris and becoming a key figure in the Guilde africaine des réalisateurs et producteurs. From the first Haroun has been a prolific and eclectic filmmaker. His early shorter films alternate between documentary and fiction and are in a number of media. His first feature, Bye Bye Africa (1999), similarly mixes fiction and documentary, black-and-white and colour sequences. The most substantial of Haroun's early works is his study of Sotigui Kouyaté, the celebrated griot and actor, who is the father of Dani Kouyaté.

Keywords:   African filmmakers, Guilde africaine des réalisateurs et producteurs, Bye Bye Africa, Sotigui Kouyaté
