Global Neorealism

Sada Niang

University Press of Mississippi

This chapter examines the influence of Italian neorealism on the Francophone African cinema of the nationalist period (1960>–75), and discusses the historical, institutional, and aesthetic affinities between these practices, which point to similar conditions, comparable histories, and a “convergence in necessity.” They show that African cinema did not become global in one fell swoop. Its globality was present from the beginning, nurtured by scholarship, aesthetic choices, and the cinema culture of the filmmakers.

Keywords:   Italian neoralism, Francophone African cinema, nationalist period
