Journey through our ethnographic moving image collection
Film Africa presents a season of contemporary and classic West African cinema. Film Africa is the Royal African Society’s annual festival celebrating the best African cinema from across the continent and diaspora. The 2015 season takes place from 30 October to 8 November in venues across London.
In this talk, illustrated with clips, short films and historic footage, Janet Topp Fargion, the British Library’s curator of West Africa; Word, Symbol, Song, takes an evocative journey through the Library’s ethnographic moving image collection, focusing on the people, music and sites of West Africa.
