SPECTRES de Sven Augustijnen - Bande annonce

Spectres

(Sven Augustijnen, 2011)

Introduced by Sven Augustijnen

Visiting Filmmakers

Rising stars and acclaimed masters come to screen their films and talk with Wexner Center audiences.

Fri, Apr 4, 2014 7 PM

Join the Wex and Belgian artist Sven Augustijnen for a screening of his powerful documentary Spectres. The film examines Belgium’s complicity in the 1961 killing of Patrice Lumumba, the first democratically elected Prime Minister of the Congo, just a year after he helped his country gain its independence from Belgium. Augustijnen reflects on Belgium’s colonial history and the ghosts that remain a part of the nation’s psyche, even today. (104 mins., DCP)
