The world is a full circle of 360°, to see it without a woman’s eye is to restrict our field of vision.

Evodie Ngueyeli, a young curator based in Cameroon has brought together ‘A Woman’s Eye 180°’, a selection of short films showing society through the eyes of African women who live in Tunisia, Senegal, Burundi, Rwanda and Mali.

These films celebrate the diversity of an immensely rich continent from east to west, north to south, bringing stories of African women that are often little understood in a globalised world. It is an ode to this feminine force that remains standing even in adversity.

The programme is curated by Evodie Ngueyeli, a young curator based in Cameroon. Evodie graduated from the University of Yaoundé in film and audiovisual production.  She has been working for 9 years for the MIS ME BINGA International Women’s Film Festival and this year joined the Africa in Motion team as curator.

This screening is subtitled.
