					                                              INFORMATION SESSIONS:

                                                      433 Paterson hall
                                         Instructor: Aboubakar Sanogo
   Prof. Blair Rutherford, Chair of Institute of
    African Studies

   Prof. Aboubakar Sanogo, Film Studies and
    African Studies
   The course is entitled African Cinema on
    Location and will consist in bringing to
    Burkina Faso, the home of African cinema,
    Carleton University students to study the
    important aspects of African cinema in situ.
    The course will be structured in such a way as
    to take the fullest possible advantage of the
    location, thus being a course that could only
    be taken there.
   Consequently, the course will have a dual
    focus; the study of African Cinema in general
    and a case study of the cinema of Burkina
    Faso as Ouagadougou hosts both the
    institutions of African and Burkinabe cinema.
    This dual focus will in turn rest on three legs,
    that is, institutions, people and places.
