Tra connessioni e disconnessioni: riflessioni a partire dai cinquant'anni del FESPACO

Farah Polato


2019 is the year of the fiftieth anniversary of FESPACO, the Panafrican Film and Television Festival of Ouagadougou, Burkina Faso. Along with the JCC (Journées Cinématographiques de Carthage, the Carthage Film Festival of Tunis), FESPACO has been a driving force and the most engaged festival in post-independence Africa. This essay aims at investigating its relevance today, in a globalized world, and measuring its ‘connectivity’ to the present day, in a century of digital innovation and in these times of the web.
