Britain burnt ’embarrassing’ documents of colonial crimes – Times Of India
LONDON: British officials burned and dumped documents from colonies in the final years of the empire in a systematic effort to hide their “dirty” secrets, according to files declassified on Friday.
Among the newly released files was a note warning authorities to be careful to avoid a situation similar to India in 1947, when the local press was filled with reports about the “pall of smoke” over Delhi at the very end of the British Raj as officials burnt documents before leaving.

AFRICAN WOMEN IN CINEMA BLOG: Gendered Sensibilities and Female Representation in African Cinema
While African women filmmakers are eager to come together under the grouping of “women filmmakers,” there is some resistance toward stating categorically that a woman’s sensibility exists in filmmaking. Aminata Ouedraogo (Burkina Faso) perceives the category “women’s films” as a vehicle for making people aware that women exist in the area of cinematic creativity, that they make films–not necessarily women’s films but rather films made by women. Anne-Laure Folly Reimann (Togo) considers a woman’s aesthetic as having a certain understanding, perception, and awareness of practices beyond the accepted standards, the familiar views and references.
