Cinema and the Anticolonial Liberation Struggles is a series of screenings and talks that explore the political projects of anticolonial struggles and how cinema shapes political events. The series focuses on African liberation movements, solidarities across borders in America and Asia, and how the future of liberation movements were imagined during the Cold War.
This programme is co-curated with Mathieu Kleyebe Abonnenc.
