Cinéfranco 2010 Day 4 - Monday March 29, 2010


Day 4 of the festival and took a bit of a quieter approach getting to see just one of the films being screened, but it was a fantastic documentary so it all worked out!

Dir: Richard Lacombe

Africorama follows three people from Quebec who go to Africa on separate journeys to contribute on international cooperation missions, but with either intentional or happy accident personal journeys as well. From new friendships formed to exploring personal history, we learn so much about the culture and connections through each of the experiences of the travellers. I really enjoyed that there was always a focus first and learning and absorbing the environments they came to, before recommending change. A greater understanding starts by simply listening. I also found it beautiful that although all three travelled with the intent to help and support, it's undeniable that they were all positively affected by the experience and relationships that formed along the way.

Cinéfranco 2010 runs from March 26 - April 3, 2010 in Toronto, Ontario, Canada
