Marie-Hélène Gutberlet and Brigitta Kuster on the work of Med Hondo, chaired by Keith Shiri
Marie-Hélène Gutberlet and Brigitta Kuster will speak about the process of editing their volumes on the work of Med Hondo, his career and cinematic legacy.
Gutberlet and Kuster’s books offer a rich insight and tribute into the life works of the late multi-faceted filmmaker and pioneer of African cinema, Med Hondo (1936-2019), capturing the scope and spirit of his practices. Hondo’s work centres around the question of what cinema means from an African perspective and examines a long history of colonialism, racism and cultural ignorance that remains pertinent today.
