  • dionysus67's rating of the film Zan Boko

    Another important perspective on the modernization process in Africa and the subsumption of village dwellings to urban planning. The political tone of the film is undoubtedly spot on and although a bit schematic at points, it nonetheless conveys well governmental corruption and authoritarian silencing of debate, involving those whose livelihood is under risk. Acting qualities aside, the film is spare but poignant.
