The Battle for Africa

Our collection of pieces exploring the mapping of colonial Africa was recently sought to be used in the opening sequence of Aljazeera’s, ‘The Battle for Africa’. Filmed on location we were delighted to welcome the crew and help by providing image content.

The two pieces chosen highlight the divisions and claims of land after the Berlin Conference of 1884.

The sequence can be watched here:
