9 July'21
- 19:00

A film by Marthe Djilo Kamga

This documentary tells the story of black LGBTQ+ people living in Belgium. What does it mean to be Afro-Belgian and queer? The protagonists talk about their trajectories as Belgians of African origin moving in a mainstream, predominantly white environment. They also defined themselves in between spaces and not belonging to the acronym ( LGBTQ+) that determines membership in the rainbow flag. ​​​​​​​


Followed by a Q&A with the film director Marthe Djilo Kamga and Diane Ntahimpera

  • Co-founder and coordinator of the Massimadi festival in Brussels, Marthe Djilo Kamga's professional and personal career has always been marked by questions of anchoring, vulnerability, multiple identities and equal opportunities. Enriched by a scientific and social university background, she defines herself as a committed artist. The questions that run through her work concern the reappropriation of imaginary and real spaces, the silence in the interactions between oppressed and oppressors, as well as the transmission and archiving of stories by and for the invisible people.
  • After training in audiovisual journalism, Diane Ntahimpera turned to the film industry. Advocating for an inclusive and diverse cinema, she is currently working for Bepax on a tool to deconstruct racism.
