Carrying on from the celebrations of Birbeck Arts Week we present an evening two films from the festival of Colombian filmmaking, introduced by their organiser Agata Lulkowska.
Nabusímake: Memories of Independence dir: Amado Villafaña
In a very personal journey film-maker Amado Villafaña and his children re-discover the tragic history of their ancestors. This short and moving film is a commemoration of traditional values and the indigenous perseverance.
Sey Arimaku: the Other Darkness dir: Pablo Mora
A reflection on long-lasting collaborations between Colombian documentary filmmaker and anthropologist, Pablo Mora, and the Director of Centre of Communications Zhigoneshi, Amado Villafaña. This is an eye-opening intercultural conversation about the nature of photography.
