14.4km and the de:colonial film and discussion series aims to convey a more differentiated picture of social and political realities in the North African and Middle-Eastern region. We encourage visitors to engage intensively and reflectively with the thematic frame of the evenings. In this year´s season, we aim to raise awareness to the more or less subtle, or even unknown forms of oppression and dependence within the EU-MENA (Middle East and North Africa) relationship and are dealing with topics around racism/white supremacy, power inequality and resistance in migration and security policy, white saviourism and neo-colonialism in international economic relations. The four events will offer a critical analysis and present alternative approaches and solution-finding. Come, share, discuss and encounter!
