Project for Non-Western

Storyboard Text

  • Masoudi! We are so glad you have joined us at this mission school in Belgium from the Congo!
  • Masoudi returns to his village in the Congo 8 years later, with his views about the white men changed.
  • Onward you all must plant certain crops in addition to the ones now. Cotton is the chief innovation.
  • You will all be given pieces of metal and paper that can be exchanged for cloth and beads and all sorts of items.
  • We prefer to live simply as we always have. We are sorry but we do not need these changes in Ndola.
  • Masoudi tells the administrator of the project that the village has declined the offer. The white men are unwilling to use force so early in the process and decide to leave them alone for a bit.
  • The white men returned with weapons and back up. The people of Ndola had no choice but to obey their orders to build roads and pick cotton.
