Breaking with humanity?

Updated: Jul 12

Double film screening and panel discussion in Hackney, London, at The Castle Cinema on 19 April 2024.

The two films we will be screening and discussing are the short essay film The bell rings (17 mins), a sweeping, untold story of bodies and emotions surfacing and submerging in a crowd gathered at the 2023 Tusványos Festival in Romania. Un/Consciously, the festival goers absorb the ethno-nationalist politics and gender war of Viktor Orbán, the Prime Minister of Hungary. It explores the lived experience of national belonging and the potentials of resistance against whiteness as global coloniality, ethnonationalism and far right ideologies. These themes are also at the heart of A FATHER A SON AND SANKARA (90 mins), a feature-length documentary on connection, care, and community as sites of struggle against racial capitalism and attendant forms of oppression it depends upon. 

The panel will be moderated by Shona Hunter, our speakers are Ash Sharma, Syed Haider, and Szilvi Naray. The panel includes the two film makers Dr Katalin Halász (The bell rings) Andreas Landeck (A FATHER A SON AND SANKARA) Through engaging with the films, we are hoping to provoke ideas in the audience on how to move on from the ongoing national and global colonial violence and dehumanization the two films explore.
