Le grand blanc de Lambaréné by Bassek Ba Kobhio( visu )
5 editions published between 1995 and 2012 in French and held by 80 libraries worldwide
Cameroonian filmmaker Bassek Ba Kobhio provides a revisionist perspective on Albert Schweitzer, Nobel Peace Prize winner and secular saint of the colonial era. Shot on the site of Schweitzer's hospital in Gabon, the film reveals him to be a man blinded to the people around him by his own spiritual self-absorption and arrogance. His paternalism leads him to cast Africans as childlike primitives to be protected from modernity, which for Ba Kobhio embodies the ultimate evil of colonialism in its inability to value the cultural difference and creative potential in Africans themselves
