23 AUGUST 6.00 pm:
Screening of THE BULL ON THE ROOF (LE BOEUF SUR LE TOIT; 2010; 80 minutes), a poetic journey through 4 cities: Johannesburg, Helsinki, New York and Vienna.
“Using various visual strategies — cinéma verité, surveillance, performance, and animation– LE BOEUF SUR LE TOIT amounts to a personal impressionistic essay that associates rather than explains, that shows rather than tells.
Lesley Marx will introduce and discussion will follow.
24 AUGUST 2.00 pm:
I MIKE WHAT I LIKE (2006; 50 Minutes).
“It offers a visceral connection with language and a fluid, narrative, cinematic experience that is a kaleidoscopic visual interpretation of Kgafela oa Magogodi’s powerful words.” (www.imdb.com)
Adam Haupt will introduce and discussion will follow.
All screenings and discussions in UCT; BEATTIE 114; book launch party at 18:00 on Wednesday in Beattie foyer
