Episode 5: How are larger histories of non-alignment, anti-colonial revolt and pan-africanisms inscribed into the landscape?
In Episode 5 of Conversations with Neighbours we ask how larger histories of non-alignment, anti-colonial revolt and pan-africanisms are inscribed into the landscape? Sudanese writer, Jamal Mahjoub, shares a reading of “Rumble in the Nile” (2015) which chronicles the early years of promise heralded by Jaafar Nimeiry’s ascent to power in Sudan in the 1970s. And Jihan el-Tahri questions why we date African independence to Ghana in 1957, and not Egypt in 1952. She tells us more about her film trilogy: Tragedy of the Great Lakes (2000); Cuba, an African Odyssey (2007); and Behind the Rainbow (2009).
