The film takes a pretty wide scope, and if there's a recurring idea here it's the value of literacy and knowledge, both individual and institutional. It's interesting choice for a through-line, but it works well at highlighting some fundamental issues. 30 years after the French had left, their influence in books used for school and pleasure reflects a wider economic post-colonial domination. The film's approach is fresh, and there's a light tone despite the serious subject that helps it go down.

Teno does an amazing job of blending genres and artfully jumping from one subject to another without losing the audience. One of the best protest documentaries ever made.
