The Screen Worlds team is delighted to welcome you to the opening night event of our Screen Worlds filmmaking showcase.
Professor Lindiwe Dovey, the team leader, will give a brief introduction to the Screen Worlds project, explaining why it was so important to us to research contemporary African filmmaking practices through the film medium itself. This talk will then be followed by a sneak preview screening of Lindiwe’s documentary Out of the Box: The Screen Worlds of Judy Kibinge (90 minutes), which focuses on the diverse and dynamic work of Kenyan filmmaker and Executive Founder and Creative Director of Docubox, Judy Kibinge. The screening will be followed by a conversation between Lindiwe and Kenyan filmmaker Pete Murimi, who stars in the film and who is the director of the award-winning, Docubox-supported film I am Samuel (2020).
This event is part of the SOAS Festival of Ideas and Film Africa 2022.

About Screen Worlds
‘African Screen Worlds: Decolonising Film and Screen Studies’ is a European Research Council funded research project led by Professor Lindiwe Dovey and based at SOAS University of London. The project aims to centre African filmmaking, the most marginalised regional cinema in Film and Screen Studies, putting it at the heart of the discipline’s future, and asking how our views begin to change when we acknowledge Africa’s presence in the diverse, complex screen worlds that make up audiovisual cultures in our contemporary moment.
