Cambridge African Film Festival (CAFF) UK, 16-24 October 2015
Cambridge African Film Festival (CAFF) has always been committed to highlighting the work and talent of African women directors. This year we are excited to be offering a screening programme called ‘Experiments with love: young South African women filmmakers’ with films by Nobunye Levin, Nikki Comninos, and Jyoti Mistry, and with introductions by Lindiwe Dovey. These films complement others in the CAFF 2015 programme, such as Love the One You Love (Jenna Cato Bass) and Ayanda (Sara Blecher). In the past few years, South Africa has witnessed a dynamic new film movement, led by young women of all races, who are experimenting with the film medium to seek new ways of figuring South Africa’s past and present. What further binds these films is their attachment to questions of intimacy, interiors, and love: familial love, fraternal love, romantic love. CAFF 2015 is thus screening a total of seven films directed by African women filmmakers, with Sara Blecher as our guest.
"Experiment with Love" is a workshop followed by screenings taking place on Saturday, 17 October.
