4th Global Africas: Africa & China - Virtual Discussion with Director Samantha Biffot

The 4th Global Africas symposium, “Africa and China,” looks to the past and the present to enrich our understanding of the relationship between Africa and China beyond geopolitical and economic endeavors and does so through culture. Online discussion with Samantha Biffot, director of the 2015 documentary "The African Who Wanted to Fly" (L’Africain qui voulait voler) about Gabonese Luc Bendza who dreamt of mastering the martial arts thanks to his childhood passion for films featuring Bruce Lee and Wag Yu.
