Deep Dive: Post Colonial African Cinema
Preceding the November 16 screening of Soleil Ô, Temple University professor Suzanne Gauch was on hand for our second-ever Deep Dive program, a closer look at the newly restored film’s context within postcolonial African cinema. Gauch has published widely on postcolonial and African cinema and she is the author of Maghrebs in Motion, or North African Cinema in Nine Movements (Oxford University Press).
Deep Dive is an ongoing series of public conversations focusing on a wide range of topics and themes related to films screened at Lightbox. These informal discussions with artists, scholars and film enthusiasts bring the film going experience into a discursive setting, extending what’s on screen to what’s on your mind.
