Sudanese Film Group Shorts
February 9, 2023 @ 7:00 pm - 8:30 pmFree
The SFG formed in April 1989 with a mission statement that pledged “to uphold the enlightening role of cinema against the armies of darkness.” Comprised of cinéastes frustrated with the limitations of Sudanese state-sponsored filmmaking, they imagined a new space for creative filmmaking, film exhibition, and education. Three months later, a coup d’état brought a military junta to power in Sudan, ending the SFG’s dream for more than a decade. The films reveal the bold ingenuity and allegorical richness of a cinema nearly lost to history.
