Screening of “Bab Sebta”

Tate Moderne, Londons
June 05th - June 05th 2024


The UK Tigritudes programme expands on a project initiated by filmmakers Dyana Gaye and Valérie Osouf in 2020. The series offers a subjective, chronological anthology of Pan-African cinema, through 68 film screenings. Together, the works included in the season span decades, running from 1956 – the year of Sudan’s independence – to today. Organised chronologically, the screenings take place across venues in London, including at BFI Southbank and the Garden Cinema. Each tells the story of a moment in time, creating resonances between works, and allowing viewers to identify geopolitical or formal connections.

This first screening includes works by filmmakers Jyoti Mistry; Shirley Bruno; Hamedine Kane; Randa Maroufi; Franck Mukunday & Tétshim and Moïse Togo, as well as a conversation with Randa Maroufi and Ayesha Hameed.

Curated with filmmakers Valerie Osouf and Dyana Gaye, the Tigritudes series continues at Tate on Friday 7 June 2024.
