About this Event

Join us for a very special screening of the documentary Mama Africa.

Mama Africa, directed by Afro-Venezuelan filmmaker Benito “Ifayemisi” Marquez, was filmed between the Republic of Nigeria and the Bolivarian Republic of Venezuela. Mama Africa is a stunning documentary that addresses the religious, cultural, and  social expressions of the Yoruba communities and Afro-descendant peoples of southern Lake Maracaibo/Bobures (Venezuela). It centers the spiritual and community leader, Solagbade Popoola, (Lagos Nigeria) and Lendis Solarte, cultural leader of the Afro-descendant communities in Bobures, Venezuela  as the protagonists of the story.

The screening will be followed by a Q&A with the Director and a musical and dance presentation by drummers, Marcos Espinoza and Miguel Ángel Monges. Dancer, Ana María Ayala, will be joining them in this celebration of the cinematic, musical, and cultural experience of the Afro-Venezuelan diaspora at CCCADI!

This panel is part of the Art of Justice Series and Race, Myth, Art and Justice project.
