Reimagining African Cityscapes

African cities are some of the fastest growing in the world; hubs of urban innovation, cultural expressions and vast engines of change. From the bustling streets of Lagos, to the ancient city walls in Mali, to new and reimagined notions of African cities, this short film programme for Hidden Door will offer new perspectives of African cityscapes.
