AV FESTIVAL 14: POSTCOLONIAL CINEMA WEEKEND
Fri 7 March 2014 – Sun 9 March 2014
This special weekend welcomes leading filmmakers in person to screen their rarely seen work. The focus on postcolonial cinema explores the complex histories and material traces of past colonial inequalities through contemporary strategies across documentary and fiction including: manipulation of archival footage, re-construction, re-enactment and the essay-film. Each filmmaker addresses the very real ghosts of the colonial past.
The weekend includes the regional premiere screening of twelve films in person by filmmakers: Yervant Gianikian & Angela Ricci Lucchi (Italy), Gabriel Abrantes (Portugal), Duncan Campbell (Scotland), Sven Augustijnen (Belgium) and Mathieu Kleybe Abonnenc (French Guiana/Paris).
Each screening is accompanied with a Q&A featuring the filmmakers and artists.
