The Colonial Misunderstanding, Jean-Marie Teno, Cameroon, 2004, 78 min.
Germany’s genocidal war against the Herrero people in Namibia was a precursor to the policies of the Nazi regime. The film shows a bold exploration of Germany’s “African past.” Specifically, its attempts to colonize parts of Africa through religion and trade. It offers a provocative picture of the relatively short, but horrific colonial history of Germany in Africa.
