Join us on Tuesday 27th July at 8pm (GMT), for an online and in-person screening of Djibril Diop Mambéty's Hyenas (1992). The film both follows-up on his Afro surrealist classic, Touki Bouki (1973) and offers an imaginative reworking of Swiss dramatist Friedrich Dürrenmatt’s The Visit (1956), a tragicomedy about a wealthy woman who offers the people of her hometown a fortune if they will execute the man who seduced and abandoned her.
Hyenas will be screened online and in-person at Sands Films Studios in Rotherhithe. The film will be introduced by Helene Neveu Kringelbach, Associate Professor of African Anthropology at UCL. There will also be a Q&A after the screening, which both the online and in-person audience are invited to participate in.
Tickets are free but donations to Sands are welcome. Details for the film and booking information at the bottom of this email. Please circulate information about the screening amongst your networks.
