Le Chef by Jean-Marie Téno( Visual )

1 edition published in 2014 in French and held by 278 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Chief! is a documentary chronicle of the trials and tribulations of daily life under dictatorship. In December, 1997, I was witness to several troubling events in Cameroon: a child thief's near lynching by the angry mob in my village; my discovery during a wedding ceremony that, by law, the husband is ruler of the family; and a highly respected journalist's arrest and imprisonment without a trial for writing an article questioning the health of the president. These seemingly unrelated events were all linked to the generalized problem of the abuse of power in authoritarian society. Chief! brings these events together in a personal reflection on the current state of Cameroonian society with its hierarchies, inequalities, and lack of respect for human rights, all of which are the by-products of dictatorship
