Interview with Jean-Marie Teno, Director of Sacred Places
Jean-Marie Teno, director of SACRED PLACES, speaks with Jim Dingeman at the 2009 African Film Festival. It brings into view things that are personal, sacred and close to Teno’s heart: identity in times of globalization, the state of African cinema and the complicated relationship between art, popular culture and business. Honoring African traditions of oral culture, the director allows the richness of everyday conversations to place the film's weight on the words that are at the origin of any meaningful action.
