The film screening is a part of the programme in conjunction with Zineb Sedira’s ongoing exhibition Standing Here Wondering Which Way to Go. Focusing on Algeria’s capital Algiers which, during the 1960s, was a hub for freedom-fighting organisations, Sedira presents the Pan African Festival 1969 as an example of how work and culture contributed to a unique spirit of solidarity that developed throughout the world.
