The research on Black African cinema within this article utilizes the concepts of strategy and tactics, as discussed by Michel de Certeau.

The hypothesis stated is that Black African cinemas infiltrate the strategic structures of dominant cinemas, thereby opening up new paths for analysis. A historical overview of images and discourses about Africa shows how the appropriation and rappropriation of the image of Blacks by Blacks themselves operate. The description of two film sequences illustrate how reappropriation functions through strongly politicized diversions.
