    Tha Film Project - Screening 'Beats of the Antonov (2015)'

    Event description

    This May we have chosen to screen Beats of the Antonov (2015) by director Hajooj Kuka. 

    The separation of Sudan into two sovereign states has not prevented the longest civil war in the African continent from raging on to this day. The inhabitants of the Blue Nile and Nuba Mountain regions, having fought for the independence of South Sudan, continue to fight for their cultural, ethnic, social, and economic rights. 

    With Beats of the Antonov, director Hajooj Kuka focuses on the everyday survival of people who have lost kin, homes, and livelihoods in the ongoing conflict, but instead of devastation and defeat, we discover communities emboldened to celebrate their heritage, and to improvise creative ways to continue harvesting crops and herding cattle. With inspiring lucidity, Kuka threads together the voices — speaking and singing — of militants, social workers, intellectuals, and other everyday folk, to reverse conventional representations of victimhood and reveal an alternative narrative of tenacity and resilience.

    We are hosting this at Victoria Park Arts Centre, with the venue open 6 pm. Tha Film Project invites you to join us for tea before the screening and holding space after the film to decompress together. This is a space for community, belonging and support.
