Thanks for a great symposium!

The Black Film Center/Archive would like to thank everyone who took part in our week-long symposium From the Postcolonial to the Global Postmodern? African and Caribbean Francophone Filmmakers and Scholars in Conversation.  The event proved to be very engaging and thought-provoking, and we hope those who participated were able to learn something new, contribute to the larger conversation, and create or strengthen relationships with other scholars and filmmakers.

Again, a special thanks to Gaston Kabore, Euzhan Palcy, Jean-Marie Teno, Jo Ramaka, Francoise Pfaff, Kenneth Harrow, and Akin Adesokan.

If you missed this wonderful event, don’t miss our next symposium, Cinematic Representations of Racial Conflict in “Real Time”, March 24-25.
