We are so excited that our film is a part of this year’s Annual Afrika Filmfestival in Leuven.

Gesproken: Engels. Ondertiteld: Engels.
De Britse dichter en activist Femi Nylander treedt in de voetsporen van de koloniale kapitein Paul Voulet die in 1899 een spoor van dood en vernieling in West-Afrika zaaide. Het was de periode waarin Joseph Conrad zijn beroemde roman Heart of Darkness publiceerde, een eigentijdse inkijk in het toenmalige kolonialisme, en het boek waarvan Barack Obama zei dat het hem hielp begrijpen waar de angst voor zwarten vandaan komt.

BOOK TICKETS

December 17, films om 17u en/of 20u] Cinema ZED / De Nieuwe Zaal, Maastrichterstraat

De openingsfilm van het festival, het internationaal gelauwerde African Apocalypse, neemt je mee naar het donkere koloniale verleden van Afrika in het spoor van een moordzuchtige koloniaal. Het is een verhaal van verdrukking en vernieling, maar ook van verzet en hoop voor de toekomst. Kolonialisme is maar één van de thema’s die aan bod komen, er is ook aandacht voor vrouwenrechten, eerlijke handel, gendergelijkheid, vluchtelingen en de multiculturele samenleving.

Die laatste heeft meester Bachmann in microformaat in zijn klas: zijn leerlingen komen samen uit meer dan 12 landen. In het magistrale epos Mr. Bachmann and his class, goed voor de Zilveren Beer én de Publieksprijs op het Filmfestival van Berlijn, blijkt dat er meer is dat hen verenigt dan wat hen verdeelt. En het verenigen van mensen, dat is net wat Ciné Solidair wil doen met deze nieuwe editie.

CineSolidair gaat van start op 17 december in Cinema ZED Hasselt met de African Apocalypse. Schepen van internationale solidariteit Derya Erdogan zal het festival plechtig openen. Bij een heel aantal vertoningen is er ook een nabespreking voorzien. Onder meer regisseur Volcan Üce van de film ALL-IN (27/12) en Ike Bertels van Desert Paradise (28/12), staan je na de vertoning graag te woord..
