Afrika Eye Film Festival

Afrika Eye and the University of Bristol invite you to a special screening of:

‘Kemtiyu: Séex Anta – Cheikh Anta’

“The Universal Man”, “The Giant of Knowledge”, “The Last Pharaoh”. These were the headlines the day after his death on February 7, 1986. Thirty years later, ‘Kemtiyu’ paints a portrait of Cheikh Anta Diop, a trail-blazing scholar with an insatiable thirst for science and knowledge who revolutionised the view of the origin of civilisations and fought to restore historical awareness and dignity to Africa.

Following the screening, please join us for a highly anticipated Q&A with the film’s director Ousmane William Mbaye and producer Laurence Attali.

Venue: Watershed
Date: 4 February 2017
