This article broadly explores the relationship between non-indexical audio-visual formats and socio-political commentary by focusing on the animated films of Congolese film-maker Jean Michel Kibushi. It uses a multidisciplinary approach,drawing on biographical information, the history of animation in Africa and the Democratic Republic of Congo, animation and African film theory, writing on Congolese popular culture and collective memory, and personal interviews with Kibushi. The article argues that Kibushi’s films both mobilize local cultural forms and offer socio-political critique
