The Centre for African and Development Studies (CEsA) launches the project “Cinema e Descolonização: Moçambique em foco” for regular film screenings in film club format, where it is intended to debate and reflect on the legacies and memories of decolonization in Mozambique.
The sessions will take place once a month, from November 2022 to July 2023, at ISEG – Lisbon School of Economics and Management – Auditorium Caixa Geral de Depósitos. Each session will have the spoken remarks of producers, directors, etc., as well as moderators and debaters who will facilitate the debate within the audience.
About the Cycle “Cinema e Descolonização: Moçambique em foco”
The project urges to understand decolonization as a process still in progress, which must be accepted and integrated into the social, political, cultural and personal dynamics. The project aims to create an open and dynamic space for sharing, where memories, narratives, dialogues and reflections can emerge. It is coordinated by Jessica Falconi (CEsA/CSG/ISEG/ULisboa) and curated by the Mozambican filmmakers Isabel Noronha and Camilo de Sousa.
