About the film:
Khalo Matabane's fictional film is an impressive debate on the effects of war and expulsion, in which the boundaries between fiction and documentary are deliberately blurred. Keniloe, a young poet in Johannesburg, strikes up a conversation in the park with Fatima, who has fled the atrocities in Somalia. He decides to use her experiences as the basis for a book. Suddenly, however, she disappears. Equipped with a video-recorder, Keniloe sets off to find her. Along the way he meets various refugees from Africa, Europe and Asia, who candidly discuss their pasts.

AAA will be screening Bamako in January; information about the film screening will be discussed.

Africa Film Series:
Conversations on a Sunday Afternoon is the last film screening of the Fall 2008 quarter and is part of a series of Africa/Africa-related/diaspora films that will be sponsored by the African Activist Association.  More details will discussed at the screening of this film.
