DOK Industry Talk
Generation Africa is an initiative by the South African non-profit media company STEPS to produce documentaries propelling a new narrative on migration through stories made by African filmmakers.
Two of the directors involved with Generation Africa talked about their latest documentaries that were realised under the umbrella of Generation Africa and celebrated their world premieres in Leipzig. Joining the conversation were Don Edkins, co-founder of STEPS (South Africa) and Philippe Muller, commissioning editor at ARTE G.E.I.E. (France) who will broadcast documentaries from the Generation Africa film project in 2022. The collection Generation Africa on ARTE is the result of a collaboration between ARTE France, ZDF/ARTE and ARTE G.E.I.E.
The talk took place on Wednesday, 27 October 2021 onsite and streamed live online.
