Africa: A New Look

Alternative Title: N/A

Series Title: A New Look


This brand new introduction to the African continent is the most current, comprehensive survey film available. It puts aside images of wild animals and festive dances and concentrates on the people of Africa today: teachers and students, politicians and artists, business people, farmers, fishermen and factory workers. The film shows primary schools and universities, commercial and family farms, religious services, health clinics, large and small businesses, a television studio, and political rallies; it gives glimpses of life in the cities as well as towns and villages.
