Entrée is excited to preview extracts from the forthcoming experimental documentary film Collectively Conscious Remembrance, produced by Bergen-based Isme Film.
The film is following the 2015-16 student protests in South Africa, and is composed of portraits of student activists who with various, overlapping identities in terms of gender, sexual orientation, race and/or class, claim their place in the student protests in Cape Town. The portraits are complemented by four members of a new generation of South African artists born after apartheid, local contemporary artists Sethembile Msezane, Imraan Christian, Jody Brand and Angel-Ho who highlight the theme of identity in their own work. These are the four short film extracts (and portraits) that Entrée will be screening the next weeks.
The backdrop for the film is a massive, nationwide student movement in South Africa that mobilized heavily in 2015 and 2016 to decolonize the country. The movement has argued that “everything” must fall in order to build up a society without solidified colonialist structures, where whites still have the upper hand long after apartheid was abolished and Nelson Mandela proclaimed that South Africa was the rainbow nation.
Isme Film is a collaboration between Aslaug Aarsæther and Ingvild Aagedal Skage. The project has received support from Western Norway Film Centre, Bergen Municipality, Fritt Ord and the Centre on Law and Social Transformation (CMI and UiB). The film Collectively Conscious Remembrance is expected to premiere in the fall of 2019.
