Curated by Maxime Jean-Baptiste and Stéphane Gérard

On the occasion of the 50th anniversary of the Collectif Jeune Cinéma, Maxime Jean-Baptiste and Stéphane Gérard present a program of films, panels and workshops at Beursschouwburg and Cinematek.

With Black Archive, they propose to reconsider the representation of black bodies through moving images, to deconstruct the racial stereotypes conveyed by dominant cinema and to confront the invisibilization of black people in the production and distribution of experimental film. To probe this absence, the program seeks to reframe these marginalized stories and experiences through the gaze of Afrodescendent filmmakers.
