Africa: Enter the Dragon
A road movie through the new world order: The Chinese have landed in Africa and are ushering in a vibrant and unexpected vision of the 21st century. Cutting through the middle of world history from the Atlantic coast deep into the heart of Africa is the Benguela Railway – the jewel in the crown of the old British transcontinental rail system, destroyed in the Cold War, now being rebuilt by Chinese construction companies. AFRICA: Enter the Dragon (a.k.a. The Angola Project) is a film about people – African and Chinese – whose lives are intimately intertwined with the reconstruction of this railway.
