Art of this Time, Art of this Place: Women Artists in Cameroon (2009, 40 mins)
This documentary presents a rare insight into the rich variety of Women’s creative force and expressions in the Visual Arts in contemporary Cameroon. From sculptors to painters, ceramists and fiberglass artists the women’s work presents specific visions and thematic concepts with universal resonance. Their artwork is testimony to their passion for the arts, and also highlights their contribution to the conception and production of the varied art practices that define aspects of Cameroonian culture and artistic traditions.
This is the first film of its kind to document the work and achievements of women visual artists in Cameroon.
