March 27th, 2014, Va’ Pensiero Walking Stories at NYU


Thursday, March 27th, 2014, at 6.30 PM, New York University’s Institute of African American Affairs, Department of Film and Television Cinema Studies and Africana Studies Program present a screening of “Va’ pensiero, Walking Stories” and a talk with director Dagmawi Yimer. Va’ pensiero, Walking Stories is an interwoven account of two racist attacks in Milan and Florence and the victims’ painful attempts to piece the fragments of their lives back together. New York University’s Institute of African American Affairs, the Department of Film and Television, Cinema Studies and the Africana Studies Program have partnered to devote a year-long exploration of the new directions in African cinema. The idea is to give students, faculty, as well as the larger New York metropolitan communities, a rare opportunity to view and discuss with the films’ directors the works that stand out, not only through the contemporary social issues they address, but also in the innovative and cutting edge manners they engage the medium in the fields of documentary, experimental and narrative.

Time: 6:30 pm. Location: Cinema Studies Dept-Tisch-NYU. 721 Broadway, 6th floor Michelson Theater
