When China Met Africa
Followed by a Q&A with directors Marc and Nick Francis
An evocative documentary closely following several Chinese-run businesses in Zambia, this is an award-winning film that highlights the shifting global relations between Africa and the rest of the world. The real success of this film, however, is its unobtrusive, observational style; the camera captures in intense close-up individual Zambian and Chinese people in all their humanity. Rather than try to impose an ideology, the filmmakers let events unfold in all their idiosyncrasy, leaving audiences entertained, amused, and provoked to further thought about the nature of the new world order.
