Summary:
"In Chef!, Cameroonian filmmaker Jean-Marie Teno looks for the roots of Africa's authoritarian regimes in the patriarchal family, reinforced by traditional kingship and the colonial experience. ... Teno investigates the ties between unaccountable government and an unproductive economy in La tête dans les nuages. ... We meet two college-educated young people, irene and Jackie, who can only find paying jobs in the burgeoning informal sector which increasingly supplies the dailysubsistence needs of most people."--container.
