AFRICA RIDING: five short films on the theme of ‘rider’ from Rwanda, Uganda, Ghana and Senegal: Marion earns her living as a bike messenger, though cycling is frowned upon for women in Uganda. In the Rwandan city of Kigali, Karim races artistically down even the bumpiest of alleyways on his rollerblades.
What these ‘riders’ have in common, according to director Liz Gomis, is ‘that they don't even think about leaving their countries for a supposed “El Dorado” in the West’ because they have ‘clear ideas’ about how to improve the lives of local young people where they are.
