The Colony examines China's aggressive new economic role in Africa. The film shows how Chinese working inside the African country of Senegal are changing the economic landscape of the continent. Senegal, where many believe China first began its economic expansion, will be looked at like a microcosm reflecting the wider trend affecting the entire continent. The documentary also looks at the myriad of ways Africans are affected by these endeavors. Written by Brent E. Huffman
