International film premiere

The film "Generation Repair" gives a visual voice to the descendants of the victims of the Ovaherero and Nama genocide.

Between documentary and road movie, interviews in Windhoek, Otjinene, Swakopmund and Berlin show colonial contrasts of poverty and wealth of the descendants of victims and perpetrators, the image of the traumatizing omnipresence of the historical genocide in Namibia today.

The film questions a "Joint Declaration" that was only negotiated between governments and looks for appropriate instruments for dealing with colonial genocide from the diaspora perspective. People of African descent in Germany: What alternatives and reparations could be developed to jointly address contemporary trauma management? The question of how Germany deals with the inner German Black and BIPOC populations today always resonate.

The film will be shown in the presence of district councilor Karin Korte and the filmmakers Adetoun Küppers-Adebisi and Michael Küppers-Adebisi.

Following the film screening there will be a moderated discussion with Dr. Matthias Henkel, head of the museum department | City history | Culture of remembrance takes place.

The film (approx. 120 min., ENGLISH, HERERO, NAMA) was made possible through funding from LEZ Berlin and Neukölln Youth Welfare Office.

The film will be shown as part of Black History Month Berlin 2024 and in the last year of the UN Decade for People of African Descent - in cooperation with the Initiative for Black People in Germany (isd)
