Presented in partnership with the Cascade Festival of African Films, this screening of Rosine Mbakam's 2023 docudrama Mambar Pierrette (which follows a seamstress and single mother in Douala) will include a performance piece by teaching artist Habiba Addo, whose work serves as a "window to ancient and contemporary African artistry and culture." Following the film, Botswana-born visiting filmmaker Mmakgosi Anita Tau, who directed For Them That Prey, will offer a 30-minute discussion. "Mbakam’s instincts as a documentarian are put to good use in this unique character study," says Tomorrow Theater, which "foregrounds common struggles and bonds among women in Africa, too often overlooked in mainstream cinema." by Lindsay Costello
