IndiePix, Celebrating Independent Film

Africa on Film

The IndiePix feature-length doc, We Will Not Die Like Dogs, which follows AIDS/HIV activists in four different African countries. The film takes the audience face-to-face with the single biggest health crisis in the world today. But beyond the heart-breaking and inspiring work of the activists, the film also raises important questions about how Africa, it's politics, people and problems are portrayed on film and in the media. This collection takes a look at some of the themes that run through films about modern Africa. From the fallout from the Civil War in Uganda (Soldier Child, Gulu Stories), to the scores of children living with HIV/AIDS and the efforts to improve their lives (ABC Africa), or the heartbreak of being forced to leave one's country (Lost Boys of Sudan) or the desire to return (I'll Sing For You), each of these films carry through them the indomitable spirit of the people, their music and their culture in the face of unspeakable hardships and seemingly insurmountable obstacles.
