Africa in Motion Film Festival Between the Sea and the Land

Mon 29 October 2018

Africa in Motion

This short film programme is thematically linked around the relationship between memory and water. Using the sea as a starting point, these films interrogate the data and trauma that water can hold and how this relates to memory.

Before I Forget - UK Premiere
Mariam Mekiwi | Egypt/Germany 2018 | 31m | Arabic with English subtitles | 15
