Throughout history, documentary filmmaking has had a complicated relationship with colonialism and has often been accused of perpetuating and upholding the legacies of imperialism. This session will bring together artists and filmmakers who confront, challenge and repurpose the colonial gaze in their work to discuss how unsettling colonial narratives has offered new ways of engaging with non-fiction image making in a post-colonial context. The session will be hosted by Fatimah Tobing Rony and speakers include Onyeka Igwe, Ephraim Asili and Laura Huertas Millán.

This event is free and available worldwide as a live-stream. The event has sold out, subscribe to our newsletter, and follow us on social media for any updates.
