Free Film Screening with Film-maker

There will be a free screening of the documentary human rights film, Ukweli, as well as a discussion with the filmmaker in Bobbitt Auditorium, Tuesday, May 2 from 8-9:15 p.m. Ukweli (TRUTH) is a film that works to help change the narrative and celebrate the beauty in Congo. Patrice Lumumba said, “The story of Africa will be written by Africans: UKWELI is the story of three artists in the Democratic Republic of Congo who are doing just that by protesting the prevailing media narrative of war, conflict and rape – and using their artistic voices to reclaim their nation’s narrative and present a more complete perspective of their country, their culture and their truth. This timely documentary illustrates the power of art as a voice and conduit for change.”
