Looking from the South

Show notes

Recently, the Oscar Academy opened its membership to filmmakers from other countries increasing the numbers of women (46%), underrepresented ethnic / racial communities (39%) and internationals (53%) from 49 countries outside of the United States. Amongst them, few filmmakers from the African continent who will contribute to change the gaze by looking Oscar-entry documentaries with their own perspective. This podcast will give voice to three of them in order to remind to film professionals from the North that the South has also something to say.
