This is a 90-minute documentary film that highlights the creative achievements of six Sub-Saharan African women in various intellectual and artistic fields, elaborating a visual archive of unprecedented quality and scope. The film reflects on the complex nature of contemporary Sub-Saharan African cultural production by women, prompting the audience to better understand and theorize the new paradigms and voices it highlights. 

A discussion with Director Marthe Djilo Kamga and Producer Frieda Ekotto (DAAS & Comparative Literature) will follow the screening.

This event is open to the public.
