The Africologist is a futuristic documentary on African History, Science, and Technology.
The purpose of this film is to inspire young Africans by using technology backed science fiction as narrative, and non-biased science facts as evidence to the claims.

CONTENT

The Africologist is a young 3D character, travelling with us throughout the film, she impersonates the subconsious curiosity we all lingering inside of us. The need to understand who we are, where we come from and where we are going.

Together with the Africologist we travel along a chronological timeline starting with the birth of the universe, the origins of life and humanity’s first steps, here in Africa. Followed by what we call Africa’s Golden Age, from Kemet to Great Zimbabwe, passing through the numerous empires and civilizations all across this continent.
The Africologist delves into Africa’s Dark Ages from slavery to colonialism and celebrates the return to independence. Finally, we take a look at our place in humanity's twenty-first-century paradigm and the possible future that we are shaping.
Along the journey, Africa’s major contributions to science and humanity serve as a guiding thread to connect the stories.
