Personal Passages: African Filmmakers in Europe

Brule la mer

Cinema Series

Cinema Series Dates February 6–March 14, 2019

Personal Passages responds to the concurrent Block exhibitions Caravans of Gold and Isaac Julien: The Leopard (Western Union Small Boats) through a series of films which illuminate 20th and 21st century migrant experiences across the Mediterranean. While dozens of films have been made by European filmmakers addressing the challenges faced by refugees and immigrants to Europe, the films in this series, made by Tunisian, Mauritanian and Malian emigré filmmakers, all provide more intimate perspectives on these experiences of displacement and diaspora.
