(This paper was delivered at the 2008 World Economic History Conference at Appalachian State University, North Carolina. A revised version of this paper became an important chapter of my second book, Francophone African Cinema: History, Culture, Politics and theory (McFarland, 2009). The present situation in Cote d’Ivoire makes this communication more than relevant for whoever really wants to understand the origin and development of the Ivorian crisis. Francophone African Cinema also features a comprehensive historical and political study of Congo.)
