2020 is het jaar waarin niet minder dan 17 landen op het Afrikaanse continent de 60ste verjaardag van hun onafhankelijkheid vieren. In samenwerking met het African Studies Centre (Universiteit Leiden) presenteren we een bijzonder Afrika-programma in het kader van Africa 2020, een jaar vol activiteiten om dit speciale jaar te vieren. Hoe gaat het nu? Vang een glimp op van het alledaagse Afrikaanse leven in 4 recente speelfilms van Afrikaanse filmmakers, afkomstig uit een van de landen die in 1960 onafhankelijk werden. Na afloop van de film zal er een Q&A sessie zijn in het bijzijn van een deskundige gelieerd aan het African Studies Centre.
