Africa Light / Gray Zone
a short film by Tino Schwanemann
Africa is full of natures colors. A colorful experience! The social, political and economical problems of the continent, however, are unsaturated. Neither black nor white, but endless gray.
"Africa Light" - as white local citizens call Namibia. The name suggests romance, the beauty of nature and promises a life without any problems in a country where the difference between rich and poor could hardly be greater. Namibia does not give that impression of it. If you look at its surface it seems like Africa in its most innocent and civilized form. It is a country that is so inviting to dream by its spectacular landscape, stunning scenery and fascinating wildlife. But despite its grandiose splendor it is an endless gray zone as well.
The film "Africa Light - Gray Zone" tells the story of a country, which is a representative of an entire continent and its development. And finally this is even a story of our entire world.
