Deferred Action, a Retrospective Archeology for the Cinema of Sudan
The session brings into discussion remnants of Sudanese Cinema through the urban archipelago of remaining open-air cinemas in Khartoum. It looks back at the history of social, political, and economic conditions after Sudan's independence in 1956 and how this artistic phenomenon and its urban manifestations reveals today.
Exploring cinema's emergence as a political space, especially under the influence of various socialist movements led by the Sudanese Socialist Union (SSU) in the 1970s and 1980s, the program includes film screenings by The Sudanese Film Group founded in 1989.
