BTF & LSFF PRESENT:
THE LIFE FARAWAY: THE SHORT FILMS OF MATI DIOP
16th Jan 2018 – ICA – 6.30 PM
Once again, Bechdel Test Fest is teaming up with London Short Film Festival! This year we are celebrating the work of Senagalese-French filmmaker and actress, Mati Diop, and her dreamlike ruminations on space, place, and home, showing a selection of her short films accompanied by readings and reflections.
Join us as we present a rare screening of four of Mati’s beautiful films:
Atlantiques (2009), Snow Canon (2011), Big In Vietnam (2012), Liberian Boy (2015)
After the screenings, we will share our own candid reflections before asking you the audience on your reactions to Mati Diop’s unique work. For an added treat, ticket holders will be treated to a free special, very limited edition zine with essays from team BTF and beyond all about our relationship to Mati’s work – a BTF collector’s item! (Zine on sale to non-ticket holders after the event)
Join us Tuesday 16 Jan at the ICA.
