BLAFROKAN - Many Nations, One People

Blafrokan Reflections:

  • This selection was somewhat of a wild card. Typically the aim is not meant to showcase Africans in horror as monstrous. However, there is freedom in expression and storytelling that broadens perspectives and range of creativity. Some stories are entertaining and others might have deeper meaning behind the fangs? What’s your take on the Black image portrayal as monster characters? Do you want to see more? Why or why not?
    Does the horror genre provide balance for African storytelling or is it bloodying our image?
  • What do you think the filmmaker was trying to convey and what did you take from the film?
