With AFRICA RIDING AFRIKAMERA presents a youth program with guests. The documentary series, from which a selection of five episodes will be shown, accompanies different communities of riders – skateboarders, roller skaters, bikers – in Accra (Ghana), Kigali (Rwanda), Dakar (Senegal) and Kampala (Uganda) who create their playgrounds out of the sidewalks, squares and slopes of the continent and thus participate in the creation of a new cultural and social order.
Also, there will be street-dance performances by Berlin dancers.
