Revolution from Afar

April 11, 2022, 8:00 PM

Free

Join us April 11, 8 p.m. for a community conversation about the new film, Revolution from Afar. Program partners Black Public Media, Maine Film Center, Maine Public Television, and Indigo Arts Alliance are excited to host this virtual panel discussion, featuring director Bentley Brown, artists Khadega Mohammed, Nyamuon aka “Moon” Nguany Machar, and moderator Hana Baba, as we engage questions of identity, art, activism, and the work of individual and communal efficacy.

In 2019, after protests across Sudan led to the fall of 30-year dictator Omar al-Bashir, the military took over and shut down the Internet, leaving those abroad to voice a plea for peaceful transition to civilian government. An ocean away, Sudanese-American poets and musicians, whose families left Sudan for America in decades past, gathered in major American cities to perform in support of the revolution. At the heart of the film is a conversation around identity, belonging, and the uncertain future of Sudan, from which they have been physically cut off.

Tune into the television broadcast of the film on Maine Public Television April 7, 9 p.m. and April 9, 2 p.m. You can also stream the film on demand at worldchannel.org beginning April 4.

RSVP to the Facebook event here.
