This documentary lecture performance integrates unseen archival footage, sound recordings, uncovered documents and personal diaries to weave together the untold story of a trove of film archives kept in the former Yugoslav capital of Belgrade, filmed by the cameraman of Yugoslav President Tito. From the birth of the Third World as a political project in the late 1950s to the battle of liberation movements across Africa to seize control of their own media narratives, filmmaker/artist Mila Turajlić explores the role cinema plays in reimagining political communities.

In compliance with French regulations, in order to enter Reid Hall, all guests must provide a pass sanitaire with proof of either full vaccination or a negative Covid test taken within the previous 72 hours. Thank you for your understanding.
