10th May 2017 from 17:30 to 18:30
Running time: 60 minutes
Professor Will Higbee of the Department of Modern Languages will give his inaugural lecture entitled Cinéma-monde: The Transnational Reach of Moroccan Cinema.
Since the late 1990s, Moroccan cinema has emerged as one of the most dynamic national cinemas within Africa and the Arab world. Through an analysis of film festivals as alternative distribution networks, the (cultural) politics of international co-production and the key contribution made by filmmakers from the Moroccan diaspora, this lecture will examine to what extent the rise of Moroccan ‘national’ cinema has been shaped by its transnational dimension.
The talk will be followed by a drinks reception in Queen's Cafe, from 18:30-20:00.
