Films screenings & debates – « DAYS OF HOPE » in CEDEJ Khartoum
In order to further promote academic exchanges, CEDEJ Khartoum is launching a series of documentary films screenings and debates.
In recent years, several documentaries dealing with key themes of interest to CEDEJ Khartoum – Sudan, the 2011 separation, migration issues, the Arab world, etc. – were produced. The content of these films, the approach chosen by the director, as well as the use of video in relation to academic research, are all topics of interest for our PhD students and researchers.
We were pleased to organize our first screening (01/03/2016):
“DAYS OF HOPE”,
by the Danish director Ditte Haarlov Johnsen
“DAYS OF HOPE” (2013, 74 min) – Every year thousands of Africans leave their families behind and risk their lives in hope of a better life. “Days of Hope” brings us close to these people, providing an inside look at the struggles these emigrants face.
Dr Kasia GRABSKA and Dr Azza AZIZ, anthropologists with interest in migration issues, lead an after-screening discussion of the film.
