Collectif Elili Photography Exhibition
The work of six photographers from the Collectif Génération Elili will be exhibited at the Malta Postal Museum & Arts Hub at 135, Archbishop Street, Valletta from 20th October till 13th November, in the run up and during RIMA Film Festival.
You are invited to the exhibition opening which will take place on Friday the 20th of October at 7pm.
La Génération Elili is a group of photographers based in Brazzaville, engaged in the promotion of Congolese photography on an international level. All of the members of the Collectif are self-educated artists, wholly passionate about photography, and determined to promote the valorisation of the visual arts and the improvement of photography in all of its manifestations.
RIMA Film Festival
The RIMA Film Festival is a showcase of films that reveal the diverse and subjective experience of exile and migration.
While many of the cinematic and media portrayals on migration that reach us primarily focus on the negative experiences of migration, the stories being told during this festival cleverly and beautifully touch on the temporal and subjective psychological questions that exile triggers. Importantly, almost all these stories are defined by the main storyteller - by those who have experienced exile.
The festival will take place on two consecutive weekends: from the 26th till the 29th of October and the 2nd till the 4th of November, at two separate venues: Casa Perieria and Malta Postal Museum in Valletta, from 8pm onwards.
The festival pays homage to Senegalese film director, actor, orator, composer and poet Djibril Diop Mambety who gained international acclaim for his experimental cinematic technique and non-linear narrative style. The unconventional Mambety made poetic and revolutionary films on both departure (Touki Bouki) and return to homeland (Hyene).
This festival will represent diverse representations of displacement: the imagined, necessary, collective, solitary, forced and voluntary; in the context of different scenarios: cities, mountains, forests, and the sea.
1 day pass: 4 euro (in advance), 6 euro (at the door)
2 weekend festival pass: 20 euro
