Film + Discussion | Transnational Apartheid? Namibia, South Africa, USA and beyond – A Community Conversation
15.Juli 2023 15:00 - 20:00
Film screening of “Germans in Namibia: Apartheid continued...”, a 2-part documentary. To be followed up by a community discussion round
The film dives into the enduring coloniality of German settler colonialism in Namibia and its legacy on the sociopolitical context in Namibia today. A community-based discussion round will follow to tackle the still existing issue and legacy of Apartheid in the world, as well as its historical rootedness in settler colonialism and slavery. The event will be held with a story-teller from Namibia, the USA, and Germany. It invites people from different communities to be in conversation with each other, interrogate said subjects and how settlerism and apartheid continue to frame our lives and political agency. It will also interrogate contemporary questions of organising in an environment of shrinking spaces for radical organising, especially concerning Black-centered issues as well as beyond.
Event to be held in English and German. Film is in English, German subtitles are available. After the event there will be Ethiopian food (even is not funded, so own/individual payments) in the garden space of Oyoun.
