Filmmakers Rosine Mbakam and Eléonore Yameogo join Belgian An van Dienderen to construct a collaborative essay film exploring the legacy of racism inherent in photographic technology.
In each of the film’s three sections the filmmakers take technological bias as a point of departure, building personal reflections on the limitations of a medium calibrated specifically for Caucasian skin. Assembled from interviews, camera colour, lighting tests and zoom conversations between the three filmmakers, Prism is a filmic ‘chain letter’ that seeks to complicate the objectivity of the camera and the relationship between technology, power and privilege in Western image making.
The screening will be followed by a conversation with Rosine Mbakam.
