In 2014 a mobile cinema traveled through Guinea-Bissau screening
recently digitised footage from a Guinean film archive, revolving
around African Liberation Movements in the 60s and 70s. This itinerant
cinema experiment continues in Berlin with the participation of
international filmmakers, artists and refugee activists, bringing
together historical and contemporary images, gestures and accounts of
solidarity, politics of mobility and the never accomplished struggle
for self-determination.

The event begins with a report on the mobile cinema by Aissatu Seidi
and Filipa César within the context of the mobility workshop at The
Arsenal Cinema. It proceeds with a critical guided tour through
Mohrenstraße and Wilhelmstraße narrated by Joshua Kwesi Aikins, and
continues with a walk to the Refugees Infopunkt at Oranienplatz where
Napuli Paul Langa will contribute a statement. Moving on to
Prinzessinnengarten, Sana na N'Hada will present his historical film
"O Regresso de Amílcar Cabral" (1976), Bino Byansi Byakuleka will read
from his manifesto and Lennart Malmer and Muhammad Lamin Jadama will
present their lens-based contributions. The evening closes with a
participant discussion moderated by Diana McCarty.

>From Boé to Berlin is part of the Visionary Archive project at the
Arsenal - Institute for Film and Video Art. This event was conceived
