Event description

Description

This is the second of three screenings at CAMPLE LINE of Alfredo Jaar's beautiful and poetic work Muxima, filmed in Angola in 2005, followed with a talk by Dr Raquel Ribeiro, Lecturer in Portuguese at the University of Edinburgh.

Described as 'a deeply moving work, at once restrained and intense', the film features ten 'cantos' each of which meditates upon a pressing issue in Angola at the time, as well as six versions of the same popular Angolese song, Muxima (meaning ‘Heart’ in Kimbudu). The first version of the song was composed in the late 1940s by Liceu Vieira Dias, leader of the group Ngola Ritmos and founder member of the People's Movement for the Liberation of Angola, mixing rhythms and Angolese poetry with themes of fado and Brazilian music.

Alfredo Jaar, Muxima, 2006 (colour, sound, 34mins) The screening will begin at 4pm, followed by Dr Riberio's talk at 5pm

£5 (£2.50)
