Abstract Africa: The Business of Food takes an enterprising look at some exciting new food stories coming out of Africa. We see how people develop new cultures and new practices to feed themselves and their families—cultures and practices that can also result in a real and profitable business. These 13 short films show how Africa can benefit from joining the international economy and give hope that effective solutions do exist to avoid hunger: Revolutionary Rice (Benin); Chain of Solidarity (Burundi); Dear Bats (Ghana; A Matter of Ticks (Kenya); A Voracious Pest (Kenya); In a Nutshell (Kenya); Shantytown Garden (Kenya); Fish for Life (Malawi); Cereal Business (Mali); The Best Catch (Mozambique); Tree-Mendous (Burkina Faso); Cocoa Comes Back (Sao Tome); and Faith, Work, and Fashion (Senegal).
