About the event
Film 1: Fatima Mahmoud Babiker and Womanism (13 Minutes)
This is a documentary film about the prominent Sudanese scholar Fatima Babiker Mahmoud. She truthfully delves into conversation and reflection about her career as a renowned authority on Sudan politics and women’s studies and her roles as an activist within the «Womanism / Black Feminism» movement.
Film 2: Kamala Ibrahim Ishaaq Painter 2017: Documentary Film (14 Minutes)
In this Film, Kamala, a Sudanese artist talks about her work from her home in Sudan. She is a prominent and important African and Arab artist who first emerged from within the Khartoum School in the 1960s. In 1978 Ishaaq, along with two of her students, established the Crystalists, an artistic movement that embraced existentialism and rejected the nationalistic expressions of the Khartoum School. The Crystalists embraced feminism and a more internationalist aesthetic that served to critique problems within Sudan.
