Tigritudes Screenings - Panafrican Film Cycle - 26 September

We invite you to explore the TIGRITUDES* cycle, a chronological anthology of Pan­ African cinema (126 films from 1956 to 2022). The 50s/60s and 2000s of the program will be presented, with screenings followed by talks or panel discussions, to resonate a part of the history of cinema from the continent and its diaspora.
