We Come As Friends: Colonial Pathologies in the African Continent

In 2016 Sub-Saharan Africa finds itself at the epicentre of a global conflict between neo-imperial superpowers, with the flows of globalised capitalism converging to inflict environmental degradation and human exploitation on a grotesque scale. Panellists will discuss the central re-formulation of old colonial pathologies and how their representation in cinema might help shape our understanding of a complex and devastating form of 21st century conflict.

The panel will be chaired by Finn Daniels-Yeomans (Africa in Motion, University of Glasgow).

This event is free and unticketed.
