Thirty years after Africa's 1960s independence movements, a generation of Africans inspired by the end of the Cold War, the fall of Berlin Wall and the dramatic political changes around the world set out to break away from the past, denouncing the one-party state, its nepotism, corruption and economic failures.
Juxtaposing past and present and connecting yesterday's colonial tragedy with today's violence, corruption and poverty, Africa: I Will Fleece You is an experimental journey which, through a first-person lens and the director's commentary, immerses the viewer in the complexities of colonialism and its aftermath, the consequences of which continue to be felt today.
