Guest event: Afrika Eye presents Badou Boy and Touki Bouki

Thursday 26 October 2017, 18:00 to 21:00

Guest Event: Afrika Eye presents an evening celebrating the work of Djibril Diop Mambéty, maverick Senegalese filmmaker, still regarded as one of the most important African filmmakers of all time: a visionary, an aesthete, a political animal. But as a lone dissenter, allergic to institutional obedience, his work was deliberately ‘lost’ by those in power.

Join us for a double bill of two of his great films, Badou Boy (1970) and Touki Bouki (1973).

The screenings will be introduced by, and followed by a discussion with, Imruh Bakari, Senior Fellow, University of Winchester, and formerly Festival Director of Zanzibar International Film Festival (1999-2004). He is a founder/director of Tanzania Screenwriters Forum and of Ceddo, the film and video production and training organization in London (1982-93). He is a former member (2012-15) of the Advisory Council of the Pan-African Federation of Filmmakers (FEPACI), and currently a member of Tanzania Independent Producers Association (TAIPA), and the Editorial Board of the Journal of African Cinemas.

Part of Africa’s Lost Classics
