This hitherto little known documentary by the photographer, painter and graphic artist William Klein plunges us into the very heart of the 1st Panafrican Cultural Festival held in Algeria in 1969 - a festival that has forever marked the history books in Africa and beyond.
Composed of archival footage of the African struggle for independence and interviews with figures in the liberation movement, the film is also a precious occasion to immerse yourself in the crowds that surrounded the African delegations and in the exuberance and euphory that marked this cultural spectacle, despite any bitter aftertaste with which this hopeful vision is now tinged, over 40 years later.
