Kultura Film Club @ Passing Clouds

Another last-minute shout-out: tonight at Passing Clouds there’s a screening of Je Ne Suis Pas Moi- Meme, a 2009 film by Alba Mora and Anna Santamaria which explores the international market for African antiquities. Shot in Cameroon and Belgium, it traces the complex journeys of art objects through the market system, and the debates over authenticity and economic and aesthetic value that shape their destinies. More info can be found at the facebook event page; there doesn’t seem to be a listing on the Passing Clouds website, but you can still check there for venue info.
