sissako_iconAbderrahmane Sissako: Transnational Poetic Cinema


  1. Friday, April 17, 2015 9:30 p.m.
Still image from the film Rostev Luanda
Ostensibly a travelogue by Sissako as he searches for a friend he met at film school in the Soviet Union, this film reveals a war-torn Angola. What Sissako finds in Luanda, Angola’s capital, are broken promises for Angolans and the continent, especially for people of his generation. The film charts these emotional currents, the dislocations of war, and nuggets of hope located in new friendships. In French language with English subtitles. (DigiBeta presentation)

This screening is sponsored by the College Arts and Humanities Institute, African Studies Program, the Black Film Center/ Archive, the Department of Comparative Literature, the Department of History, Film and Media Studies, The Media School, and the IU Cinema. Special thanks to Cultural Services of the French Embassy, Institut Français, Amélie Garin-Davet, and Marissa Moorman. Screenings are free, but ticketed.
