Talking Movies African Special 

African cinema, or rather, cinema made by Africans, doesn’t have much of a presence in the global film industry. To many, the founding father of African cinema is Ousmane Sembene who challenged the movies created by the West. 

In this programme, presented by Tom Brook, we will be looking at Sembene and his legacy through interviews with key African filmmakers. Talking Movies will also be reporting on the prevailing themes and contemporary Nollywood movies and examine how screenplays are often crafted to help audiences address moral dilemmas in their lives.
