A Tree Far from the Forest

By Jean Marie Teno

Illegal Immigrants of the South
by Adama ROAMBA

They left Burkina Faso in search of a better life. They settled in the Ivory Coast where they found work, married, had children, bought land and built homes. Today the children of those Burkinabe immigrants are adults who, for the most part, have never been to Burkina Faso. Yet due to recent changes in that country nationality laws, they cannot become citizens of the Ivory Coast. Even worse, children of immigrants now find themselves with no official identity. They are not Burkinabe and they can’t get any papers in the Ivory Coast. Without ever moving, they have become illegal immigrants. The new nationality laws also forbid “foreigners” from inheriting land and holding certain jobs. Almost overnight, life in the Ivory Coast has become a nightmare.

My German Diaries by Jean Marie Teno
MY GERMAN DIARIES is a voyage across Germany and through time during which I seek to uncover the process of dehumanisation of the African in Europe from the mid-19th century. The image of the African—childlike, savage, backwards, inferior —widely disseminated across the continent until the middle of the 20th century, continues to have visible repercussions in Europe to this day.

I’ve chosen to focus on European missionary history, the political role played by churches and missionaries in the colonial enterprise, in order to expose the churches’ contribution to the construction of the image of the African?

I will begin my journey in Wuppertal, at the “Mission Evangelique Reunie”, where I recently met several missionaries who are critical of their mission’s past, but claim that their church has changed today. I will also visit the Basel mission in Switzerland…

My McDonald’s: Memoirs from the Fast Food Nation by Christiane Badgley
My McDonald's: Memoirs from the Fast Food Nation offers an intimate history of fast
food—my own story evoking key moments in the industry's growth—and a personal reflection on the far-reaching impact of fast food on contemporary society. The film is a revelatory journey from France, where I now live and observe the growing presence of McDonald’s, to my homeland, Southern California, cradle of the fast food civilization.
Fast food: there's more to the story than the planetary triumph of hamburgers and fries. The guiding principles of the fast food industry—efficiency, predictability and control—have spread to all sectors of the American economy, creating a fast food nation of chains and shopping malls, a vast land of regimentation and uniformity. The fast food industry has fundamentally altered life in America—making one city virtually indistinguishable from the next, transforming agriculture into multinational agribusiness, and flooding the labor market with low-paying, dead-end jobs. And today, the fast food culture appears poised to conquer the planet... – Christiane Badgley
