Abstract

Med Hondo is a Mauritanian filmmaker who has worked extensively in France, best known for his film Soleil O (France/Mauritania, 1967). He has done extensive work in dubbing Hollywood films (most notably the roles played by Eddie Murphy) in France. This manifesto addresses both the absence of African and Arab cultures onscreen and decries the colonization of Arab and African cinema screens that profoundly limits the circulation of films made by Arabs and Africans on their screens and abroad, along with the inability of many filmmakers to work in their home countries, forcing them to go and work in the cinema industries of the colonizers.
