Special Filmmaker Talk with a panel of filmmakers of French co-produced films from Africa, focusing on their experience as filmmakers and how their films are rethinking African-European relations in a broader context.
France and other European countries are actively participating in co-productions for films coming from regions of our world where intellectual freedom is not necessarily guaranteed, borders restrict movements, and colonial heritage of bygone centuries are encoded in their culture and lives. Here we encounter films that provoke change to outdated power relations in our societies, culture, and minds. How are these films and filmmakers negotiating the future of African-European relations?
The panel consists of three filmmakers with films in the IDFA program this year: Myriam Bakir (Mothers - Competition for Mid-Length Documentary), Mohamed Said Ouma (Red Card - Luminous), and Dieudo Hamadi (Downstream to Kinshasa - Masters). Moderated by Tessa Boerman.
This Filmmaker Talk is hosted by UniFrance.
