Spectres

On Saturday Jury group #2 saw Sven Augustijnen's 'Spectres,' which was a photography exhibit and documentary about Patrice Lumumba who was Prime Minister of the Congo, and was assassinated shortly after the country became independent from Belgium in 1960. The photographs were from the archives of individuals who were interviewed in the documentary, and had never been published/seen before. Before the film, Sven came to talk to the Jury about the exhibition and the documentary, and explain the historical context around Lumumba's assassination. We didn't have enough time to see the whole film, which I would've liked to.

Just learned of A Younger Theatre, a group who does stuff sort of like this, only more full time and formally.
