Carte Blanche to the magazine "The funambulist"

LUNDIS DE L’INA x Palais de Tokyo

In the framework of the exhibition Sarah Maldoror: tricontinental cinema, Les Lundis de l’INA invited the team of the magazine The Funambulist, “a magazine dedicated to the politics of space and bodies”, to revisit the archives of the Institut National de l’Audiovisuel – meaning French radio and television.

Sarah Maldoror’s cinematographic works anchor us in the textures of a time and of a specific geography of struggles deeply linked to each other. We have re-examined the archives through the questions, interests and situations that are ours here and now: from the front lines of the Angolan war of independence to Aimé Césaire’s poetry of Negritude [Blackness], from Maldoror’s paternal Guadeloupe, its tireless social movements and its First Conference of the Last French Colonies, to the unstoppable Kanak liberation movement, from the Paris shantytowns where Portuguese deserters lived, to the internationalist meeting points of leaders like Amilcar Cabral, Marcelino dos Santos and Agostinho Neto.
