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 dependant on aid. Positive stories from Africa have been mostly limited to adventure stories, tribal fantasies and sunset-Safaris.The idea behind the documentary “Made in Africa” is to tell a new story. Made in Africa will tell the story of a young generation of Africans on the rise, striving for success and independence, a story of innovation and technological revolution. “Made in Africa” will portray leading figures in different countries, tell their personal story and connect them to the bigger picture of the dynamic changes the continent is undergoing.
