Invite to ONE CITY-MANY CULTURES Master Class

Dear Friends

The Documentary Filmmakers’ Association invites you to a Master Class and conversation with filmmakers Francois Verster and Dylan Valley as part of the Cape Winelands Festival. The discussion will be facilitated by Dr Premesh Lalu- Professor of History and Director of the Centre for Humanities Research at UWC.

The filmmakers will be responding to the theme of this year’s festival – which is ONE CITY - MANY CULTURES. They will address issues such as the role of the outsider looking in and the challenges to received notions of subject-filmmaker power relations. The filmmakers will be sharing examples of their work as well as their experiences.

Join us for snacks and a drink afterwards. It will be a great opportunity for exchange and discussion.

When : 18th of March at 17h00
Where : TH Barry Lecture Theatre Iziko Museum, Company Gardens, Cape Town.
