DarSudan e.V. presents:
Women*’s activisms in Sudan
A film screening, reading and discussion
Inspired by the still ongoing revolution in Sudan, which began in December 2018, we will screen a short film by Razan Mohamed Abdel Rahman, Tuba Lahunna (2021). The short documentary revolves around the consequences of the war in Darfur, western Sudan, on women. It highlights the suffering and the hope of displaced women working in brick yards in Abu Shouk camp for the displaced in North Darfur. Tuba Lahunna won the 2021 GSA Award by the British Academy of Film and Television Arts (BAFTA) in the documentary category.
The evening will also include a reading by Leem Elnageib of part of her essay, “Street Theater as Resistance in Khartoum ”, which describes her experience of collective work as a young person in street theater under the dictatorship.
Several Sudanese feminists will join us, and we hope to have a dialogue with others about women*’s activisms for emancipation, the connections we have with each other within and across borders, and possibilities for solidarity and collective resistance.
DarSudan e.V., founded in 2021 by a group of Sudanese feminists, is a culture and arts non-profit organization based in the city of Berlin. DarSudan e.V. works to build an intersectional space of exchange between Sudanese arts and cultures and the diverse communities that call Berlin home.
