Africa, Search for Common Ground [videorecording]

produced by Search for Common Ground and Common Ground Productions
Format
Video; DVD
Summary
"This 8-part television series reveals Africa as seen by Africans. Each program explores conflicts across the continent, and how they are being resolved. With its uniquely African identity, flavour, and feel, viewers go behind the headlines. Each story is told by local people; the "players" in the conflict whose powerful narrative sheds new light on issues of concern to the entire continent. Each episode demonstrates that good storytelling does not have to glorify conflict for its own sake. That a search for agreement can be as dramatic as a soap opera. At the same time, the programs undermine the view that Africans are incapable of solving their own problems." -- Search for Common Ground website.
