Summary

AfrikPlay – Filmes à Conversa | Chat and a movie is a new project presenting films focused in contemporary Africa, organized by CRIA (Network Centre for Anthropology Research) | ISCTE-IUL and Center of African Studies (CEA-IUL) | ISCTE-IUL. Being a ‘work in progress’, aims to bring cinema to the university, opening space for debate and reflection around films that present a innovative look on Africa. The growth of cinematographic productions about Africa has highlighted a number of films that set themselves apart from classical documentary concepts, either in their subjects of interest and chosen aesthetic language, approaching other artistic fields and merging reality with fiction. Some questions arouse our interest: what is the relationship between ‘yesterday’s images and the ones these new generations choose to see in Africa? How these fresh revelations defy our understanding of such a vast and complex continent?

The growth of cinematographic productions about Africa has highlighted a number of films that set themselves apart from classical documentary concepts, either in their subjects of interest and chosen aesthetic language, approaching other artistic fields and merging reality with fiction. Some questions arouse our interest: what is the relationship between ‘yesterday’s images and the ones these new generations choose to see in Africa? How these fresh revelations defy our understanding of such a vast and complex continent?

In all sessions we will have a guest speaker, related to the themes presented in each documentary, for a good chat around the screened films.
O AfrikPlay | Filmes à Conversa | Chat and a movie will be presented in ISCTE – IUL, Lisbon.
Public is intended to be wide and plural, and all sessions are free.

The opening cycle, in May and June, will present recently produced documentaries, highlighting four films that are an absolute premiere in Portugal: Fambul Tok (Sara Terry), Stocktown X South Africa (Teddy Goitom), Shooting Freetown (Kieran Hanson) e Where are you taking me? (Kimi Takesue).
