The Nest Collective bring their cameras abroad to London and Cape Town from their home in Nairobi to create brief, evocative documentaries. Their focus? Feminist, queer and migration activists in each of these cities. They’ll create profiles of those who push back against the forces that try to sequester and incapacitate minority communities. But it’s not cinema verité, they’ll depict these activists’ lives in a style that evokes memories, injustice, intimacy and solidarity through vibrant and fantasy-filled sounds and visuals.
Performed as a screening of short films with interviews and interventions from The Nest and a series of special guests, The Feminine and the Foreign will bring LIFT and Art Night audiences together for the first time in an event that is sure to offer insight, intelligence and beauty.
FREE and non-ticketed, access on a first-come first-served basis.
Presented by LIFT and Art Night.
Commissioned by LIFT in partnership with the Institute for Creative Arts at the University of Cape Town and Art Night. Supported by British Council SSA Arts as part of FestivalConnect, British Council Festivals_in Motion, Esmée Fairbairn Foundation and LIFT’s Membership Programme.
