Short presentation

The thesis explores the representations of Christianity and Scripture in sub-Saharan African cinemas. With a focus on four case-studies from Mali, Côte d’Ivoire, the Republic of Congo and South Africa, the objective is to show how Christianity and Scripture have been addressed through the prisms of colonialism, post-colonialism, and world Christianity, and how these themes are negotiated within the transnational dynamics surrounding sub-Saharan African cinemas.
