TOGOLAND: IMPERIAL PROJECTIONS will go into production next year. Under the direction of Jürgen Ellinghaus, who was born on the Weser river and now lives on the Seine, films are shown in front of our camera in Togo, West Africa, which were made over a century ago in the German colony “Togoland”. Together with the audience in today’s Togo, we discover these film images and collectively question the film material about its historical background and the effects of colonialism to this day.

The feature documentary TOGOLAND is a French-German co-production between Les Films de l’œil sauvage, maxim film and Rundfunk Berlin-Brandenburg, funded among others from CNC in France and nordmedia Lower Saxony/Bremen in Germany.
