North Africa is often ignored when considering African history and identity, the idea being that the ‘real’ Africa only begins with Black Africans below the Sahara Desert. Yet, in the 1960s newly independent Algeria was the focal point for anti-colonial movements right across the continent.
The screening of William Klein’s documentary of the 1969 Pan-African Festival of Algiers is followed by a roundtable conversation with three remarkable Algerian artists - photographer Nadja Makhlouf, performance artist Sarah El Hamed and creative technologist Yasmine Boudiaf. The artists will reflect together both on Klein’s film and how their own creative practices do connect with Africa. As such the conversation will consider the deep histories between North and Sub-Saharan Africa and how these histories are expressed in all aspects of contemporary culture in North Africa, including music, poetry and dance. A fascinating take on a frequently forgotten, but crucial part of African history.
