DIRECTORS IN FOCUS / KEVIN JEROME EVERSON, CLAUDRENA N. HAROLD
Two films in which thinking about the past enables one to imagine new presents and new futures. A Story From Africa is an impressive re‐enactment of an occupation of the Cuamato people territory in Southern Angola, in 1907, by the Portuguese army, based on on photographic archives. Palimpsest of the Africa Museum follows the discussions around the renovation of the Royal Museum for Central Africa (Belgium), and the possibility of decolonising it.
