Workshop and Short Film Walk in Tanzania

At the end of October, the Ajabu Ajabu collective from Dar es Salaam, Tanzania, presented a film series at the B-Movie cinema in Hamburg. Ajabu Ajabu is committed to the preservation, production and presentation of underrepresented narratives and supports amateur formats and experimental approaches to storytelling.

The visit was the first result of discussions since the beginning of the year between Ajabu Ajabu, B-Movie and A Wall is a Screen, a film exchange program between Tanzania and Germany, the twin cities of Hamburg and Dar es Salaam. The starting point for the discussion is historical works, forgotten films and the associated visualization of film in the public sphere.

Our return visit to Dar es Salaam is now scheduled for mid-December. Representatives of B-Movies and A Wall is a Screen will show film programs at Ajabu Ajabu and in the urban space of Dar es Salaam and conduct a workshop with Ajabu Ajabu at the Goethe Institute there: with joint research and in examination of the local urban space, we will develop one of our tours in Dar es Salaam together with Ajabu Ajabu. The aim is to test ways of making film culture visible and to make film an experience.
We hope to expand further cooperation, to develop knowledge together and to expand the network of cultural institutions from Dar es Salaam and Hamburg.
