These practices detach visual anthropology from its Western colonial legacy and expand the horizon of knowledge creation, storytelling and collaborative research in humanities. Following the previous discussion in Part1, we dig into prospects and challenges facing the image-making on Africa more deeply through watching and discussing about two graduation films of the master course in Maroua University in Cameroun.Moderators:Itsushi KawaseNational Museum of Ethnology, JapanRan MuratsuAfrican Studies Center, Tokyo University of Foreign StudiesTakanori OishiAfrican Studies Center, Tokyo University of Foreign StudiesFilm 1Ladde salori, the impossible life in the bushFilmmaker: Hamidou HamidouYear of production: 2020Location: CamerounDuration: 36 minutesSound: monoLanguage: Fulfulde, French (English and French Subtitles)SynopsisThe film "Laddé Salori" the impossible life in the bush" portrays three Mbororo Fulani refugees' brothers from the Central African Republic living in Meidougou, a small village in rural Cameroon. Due to violence and abduction by criminals throughout the bush areas in their region, they can no longer live their traditional pastoralists' way of life. The days of freedom and wealth are over and their large herds have disappeared. Their cattle have been sold away to pay ransoms. The nomads had to flee and have been forced to settle. The film follows the three men's everyday life struggle. They are obliged to start cultivating and to send their children to school. Adapting to a monetary economy in sedentary lifestyle is challenging and humiliating to them.Film 2Happier than a millionaire (A l'aise plus qu'un millionnaire).Filmmaker: Atouna MichelYear of production: 2019Location: Maroua, CameroonDuration: 24 minutesSound: monoLanguage: Fulfulde (English Subtitles)SynopsisTchistchaz and Daylon, young men of 27 years each and their friends made narcotic drugs.
