Session 1 | Congo Shorts
11.30am – 1pm
Suitable for 16+

This screening features a series of short films which showcase contemporary congolese voices via animation, music and documentary. It thinks about the role of such films as examples of contemporary archives and how sites such as YouTube can act as a space for the circulation of knowledge.

After the screening we will host a Q&A with Furaha Muss, a community activist passionate about social justice, grassroots change and using creative means to promote peace. Pascal Mirndi, a 23 year old student and activist within Extinction Rebellion, University of Goma, and a member of the LUCHA, a Congolese citizens’ movement, will join the Q&A via video call.
