Jean-Marie Teno Masterclass - Scottish Documentary Institute

Jean-Marie Teno Masterclass

We are delighted to welcome Cameroonian filmmaker Jean-Marie Teno for the second masterclass of our new Bridging the Gap season.

Jean-Marie Teno has emerged as one of Africa’s pre-eminent and most talented documentary filmmakers. He has been producing and directing films on the colonial and post-colonial history of Africa for over 20 years and his films have been honoured at festivals worldwide, including Berlin, Toronto, San Francisco and London.

Jean-Marie Teno will talk about how he started developing the first person narrative in his documentary filmmaking at a time when this was quite a political act. He will also screen one of his early shorts, hardly seen anywhere.

This is a fantastic opportunity to hear one of the true masters of documentary filmmaking speak about his work.

His best known film ‘Africa, I Will Fleece You’ will be screened at Filmhouse on the same day at 6:00pm (tickets from the venue).

Masterclass is free but please RSVP to
