All are welcome to attend a screening of the award winning 2023 documentary Maka, followed by a Q&A with director Elia Moutamid.

"Maka presents Geneviéve Makaping’s life in Italy and perilous migration journey. By sharing Makaping’s experience as the first Black news editor in Italy, Maka speaks out against the media representation of immigrants and offers an evocative examination of the intersection between sexism and racism in Italy. From Moroccan-born Italian director Elia Moutamid, this riveting documentary offers a poignant exploration of displacement, identity, and belonging." https://film.5e6.it/portfolio/maka/
