Project description

Les Films du Djabadjah is an independent production and distribution company created by filmmaker Berni Goldblat in 2006. It is also involved in executive production, in the organisation of film writing residencies, in circulation and programming, and works for a better visibility of African cinema on the continent.

Initially conceived as part of the Africa2020 Cultural Season, then presented in early 2022 at the Forum des Images in Paris, “Tigritudes” is a film cycle of 119 pan-African and Afro-diasporic films, produced between 1956 and 2021. The project in question aims to organise a touring programme, in Burkina Faso in the first instance.
By revealing an accessible and eclectic cinema, “Tigritudes Itinérance” works to deconstruct a reductive and restrictive vision of African cinema.
