Film Africa 2016: Round-Up of Day 4

About last night, we brought you more captivating pictures and conversations!

A remarkable Director Anisia Uzeyman joined us to discuss her experimental film Dreamstates with fellow filmmaker Amelia Umuhire . Here are some shots of yesterday’s blissful talks of dreams, reality and the challenges of her innovative filmmaking process.

Director Anisia Uzeyman speaks during a Q&A about her movie, Dreamstates. Dreamstates tells the haunting tale of two wayward souls (Saul Williams and Anisia Uzeyman) discovering their love for one another while touring the U.S. with some of the most pivotal figures of the Afro-Punk movement. Shot entirely on an iPhone, Rwandan filmmaker Anisia Uzeyman’s daring debut feature is a sultry, sensual and quixotic underground journey between dreams and reality. London, Monday 31 October 2016.
