Bronze Men of Cameroon
The Bronze Men of Cameroon, explores cultural heritage, continuity and change.
It presents a portrait of bronze casting as a valued traditional practice that has defined the identity of the Bamum People in the Western Region of Cameroon.
A once flourishing tradition is now endangered as global trends impact on the treasured way of life that has sustained livelihoods over several generations.
We are left with the question ‘Are the processes of globalisation incompatible with the preservation of indigenous cultures?
This screening will be followed by a Q&A curated by Afrika Eye.
