SOAS Festival of Ideas: Screen Worlds Opening Night Event
The Screen Worlds team is delighted to welcome you to the opening night event of our Screen Worlds filmmaking showcase.
Professor Lindiwe Dovey, the team leader, will give a brief introduction to the Screen Worlds project, explaining why it was so important to us to research contemporary African filmmaking practices through the film medium itself. This talk will then be followed by a sneak preview screening of Lindiwe’s documentary Out of the Box: The Screen Worlds of Judy Kibinge (90 minutes), which focuses on the diverse and dynamic work of Kenyan filmmaker and Executive Founder and Creative Director of Docubox, Judy Kibinge. The screening will be followed by a conversation between Lindiwe and Kenyan filmmaker Pete Murimi, who stars in the film and who is the director of the award-winning, Docubox-supported film I am Samuel (2020).
