La mondialisation culturelle en Afrique francophone : le cas du cinéma à Libreville (Gabon)

Abstract : Movement of cultural products, standardization of cultures, cultural diversity, Americanization of cultures. These are the theories which are conveyed by cultural globalization. However, History has shown that the theory which is approved unanimously by Economics, Corporate Management and Sociology is: the movement of cultural products, services and economic goods on a worldwide scale. For this reason, we wanted to experiment it in Sociology and more precisely in the area of cinema. For this purpose, we have noted down thanks to the cinema programmes of television channels, of the theatre room of the French Institute of Gabon, and of videoclubs that there is a panorama of world films (American, French, Ivoirian, Mexican, Gabonese, etc.) that are in circulation on the market. Furthermore, it was also important for us to demonstrate that the Gabonese people does not undergo cultural globalization. Therefore, the study of the cinema culture in Gabon makes sense. This study has confirmed the fact that the Gabonese are particularly interested in films which are close to their society (social facts and traditional cultures). This explains the fact that Gabonese people mostly prefer films from Ivory Coast, Latin American, Nigeria and Ghana. Other cinemas - the American one, for instance- are well accepted too. In light of this, we can say that Gabon is really in cultural globalization.
