This is my Africa –
In “expressions” we are presented with clips of idiomatic expressions from various parts of the continent – one very familiar one is the Nigerian expression of dismissal, “Look at you, idiot”, followed by a long sucking of teeth (how do you write that?) and a dismissive hand. I wonder if other countries have similar expressions of belittling?
Unfortunately, and I cant understand why, embedding the 2 minute video clip in which people are asked to imagine Africa in 2060, has been disabled so to view click here.
The best answer:
“I’d like it to be anarchic, bohemian, fun….I’m looking for the anarchy people use as forms of self-expression. Not the anarchy thats imposed on them not the lawless stuff, the anarchy of the imagination. “
