Made in Africa is a feature-length documentary about African digital innovation culture – it will break with clichés and let the viewer experience a side of Africa they have never seen before. What do you think of when you hear the phrase “Made in Africa”? Safaris? Massai walking into the sunset? Wooden masks and big colourful prints? Refugee camps and famine? Diamond mines and child soldiers? In the past, Africa has been portrayed as the lost continent, the dark continent, a continent ridden by crisis and dependent on aid. Positive stories from Africa have been mostly limited to adventure stories, tribal fantasies and sunset-safaris – Africa is much more!
