The University Museum and Art Gallery of the University of Hong Kong is pleased to collaborate with Alliance Française de Hong Kong and with the support of Institut Français on presenting this cinematic outreach programme to complement the exhibition Colours of Congo: Patterns, Symbols and Narratives in 20th-Century Congolese Paintings.

Highlighting the contemporary struggles of individuals across the continent, this series of African films presents a broad array of people working to achieve their beliefs and dreams while searching for their own distinct identities. Throughout these works, the vibrant lens of African cinema shatters the colonialist perspectives that have long masked Africa’s inherent beauty.
