Building Fantasies: East Africa in Film

KenyaThe vision of Africa as “the dark continent” was cemented in film history by films like 1951’s The African Queen, but that’s only a fraction of the role that the continent plays on film. From romanticized portrays of Africa’s natural splendor to the investigations into its recent history in Hotel Rwanda and The Last King of Scotland, the legacy of Africa on film is as diverse as the continent itself. Lee Middleton is your guide to the East African countries of Kenya, Uganda, Tanzania and the Democratic Republic of Congo.
