Event description

Description

AiM Film Club is a new, year-round, screening series hosted by Africa in Motion. Through regular screenings we hope to enable more critical engagement with film to explore new ideas, and different points of view in an open and positive way.


We will create space for discussing topics put forward in the film, in a non-formal, learning environment, looking at different political and historical moments. Each film programmed will respond to a different theme or context and will have additional activity attached to it e.g interrupted screenings, accompanying reading material, informal conversation or invited guest speakers.


We would like this to be a collaborative space of learning and sharing and are therefore welcoming suggestions of how the film club can respond best to the needs of its audience, whether this is by suggesting a topic to explore or a film to screen.


The second film in the series will be Kuxa Kanema, a documentary by Margarida Cardoso that looks at the power of moving image in the 70s Socialist movements in Mozambique. The screening will be followed by an informal discussion. Additional reading material about the film will be available too.


BLURB

The history of the Mozambican Film Institute cannot be disassociated from the independence movement embodied by President Samora Machel and FRELIMO (Mozambique Liberation Front). The films, which reflect the country's commitment to socialism and its combat for independence, are stored in an almost abandoned location, a reflection of the country itself. Those who created it - directors, screenwriters, technicians - return to the Institute to re-view these images and discuss the history of a film industry that is a unique testimonial to the country, its struggles and wars. This film examines the difficulty of a developing nation in surviving in a world of moving images.

*Travel costs can be reimbursed for anybody who requires it. Any questions on accessibility can be sent to myriam@africa-in-motion.org.uk*
