Ma Mary

Now that is one expensive DVD


Tape costs A$210. What does this mean in US $?


I am definitely getting a copy. While South African apartheid heroes like Biko are venerated in South Africa, In Cameroon, we bury our heroes, cast them to damnation and erase their achievements from textbooks. A good man's works can never be silenced. Moumie's achievements will sing from his grave and make the whole world tremble.


Ma Mary, if this documentary was about Nfor Nfor's hand-clapping DUTY at the U.N, would you complain about costs? It's expensive, yes but take certain things into consideration. This is not Hollywood where profits and turnovers are guaranteed. The market for this documentary will mostly be Africans and we all know that in Africa, people don't buy original DVDs. Piracy has invaded the system. Even if they bought DVDs, who in Cameroon will buy it? let's face facts. Only some history teachers and a few intellectuals and educated people. The rest of the population will remain unmoved and would rather indulge in alcoholic activities.
Their market is limited mostly to the educated in the diaspora and that's why they are charging that price.
