SAFAR Film Festival

Part of two festival events showcasing Sudanese films spanning from the 1970s and 1980s to contemporary works reflecting the aftermath of the 2019 revolution. 

Talal Afifi, Founder of Sudan Film Factory and Sudan Film Festival in Khartoum, presents Sudanese Cinema: Unfinished Journeys, Endless Dreams, two evenings dedicated to showcasing Sudanese films spanning from the 1970s and 1980s to contemporary works reflecting the aftermath of the 2019 revolution. The selection tries not only to explore the socio-political developments depicted in these films but also delves into the cinematic techniques, practices and visual experimentation that Sudanese filmmakers have employed over nearly four decades.

A Visit To Vanguard Cinema‘s selection focuses on archive cinema and the Sudanese Film Group, which was formed in 1989 by Ibrahim Shaddad, Altayeb Mahdi and Suleiman El Nour - filmmakers who worked in Ministry of Culture in the late 70s & early 80s. Followed by a talk with film scholar Erica Carter.

Event ends 5.05pm.
