The Bronze Men of Cameroon (U)

Director: Florence Ayisi

Wales, 2021, 55 minutes, French & Bamum with subtitles

 

A beautifully shot, intimate portrait of a community of bronze artisans in Foumban, the ‘City of Arts’ that explores cultural heritage, continuity, and change. As we watch them at work, we learn how they produce bronzes that are inscribed with symbolic narratives, collective memory, and the identity of the Bamum. And also how this traditional art practice and unique cultural heritage is threatened by global trends. Are these the last generation of bronze craftsmen in the Bamum Kingdom?
