Katy Léna N’diaye in person for Q&A

The year 1960 marked the end of the colonial empires across the African continent. France disappeared from the map, leaving behind a colonial creation, the CFA Franc, a currency that still circulates in almost all of France’s former territories south of the Sahara. Why did those countries never denounce this strange legacy after they regained their freedom? The film delves into a little-known story that started in the 19th century and continues to the present time.

This screening of Money, Freedom, a Story of CFA Franc is co-presented by Africa Is a Country.
