When Africa Arose in Development
Zimmedia is now developing a 6 x 52 minute documentary series called When Africa Arose. Telling the story of African civilisations and international trade through modern eyes, it will be filmed in Africa, Arabia, China, India and Brazil.
Simon Bright will travel to Brazil in March to the Rio Content Market where there is a meeting with a Brazilian co-producer and with TV stations and other investors to secure the finance for the series. Bright is keen to initially finance the series from the BRICS (Brazil, Russia, India, China, and South Africa) trading block. Receiving its principal funding and distribution from the BRICS countries, the series will emphasise the re-emergence of trade links that existed long before the colonial era.
