Back to Africa / Othmar Schmiderer

Tata, Huit Huit, Sonko, Waterman and Georges are successful artists both in Africa and in Europe, where their performances in Afrika! Afrika! have greatly contributed to the success of this André Heller circus show. Back to Africa follows the five protagonists over a period of one year: during rehearsals, during the show, but mostly during their visits to their home countries in Africa. The film explores the extraordinary energy and adventurous life stories of these artists, conveying very personal insights into the African way of life and, using spectacular images, showing their immediate environments and the vast landscapes in which they live. In fascinating images shot in Senegal, Ghana, Gambia, Congo, Guinea and Europe, Othmar Schmiderer’s documentary tells a story of a love for life and of everyday culture, of dance and music, of hope, diversity and inspiration.
