Broaden your view on gender and diversity thanks to Aflamna 

The gender balance in the film industry is way off. Between 2006 and 2018, barely two in ten Flemish films were produced by a woman. This was no different in the rest of the world, yet we see different trends here and there. For example, the Arab world has welcomed numerous talented female directors over the past few decades. Not only are they taking the lead in a male-dominated industry, but they are also telling stories that would otherwise remain untold. Anflamna wants to discuss these stories and put them in the spotlight through film excerpts. As a committed VUB student, this is the perfect opportunity for you to broaden your view on gender and diversity

Anflamna shows you the world through the eyes of female Arab filmmakers. The first Anflamna evening will take place on September 14 at the Kaaitheater. On that evening, three women will dive into their film archives. On the basis of fragments of films from North Africa and the Middle East, they will enter into discussion with each other and make you think about gender stereotyping, cultural taboos, and their own trajectory or experience as directors or programmers. Moreover, the fragments give you a clear picture of the layered and complex reality that is often unheard of by the wider Brussels audience. It is therefore the ideal way for a VUB'er to get an inclusive and coherent feeling. A feeling that is not only present within the VUB community, but also far beyond. So don't hesitate and get inspired by these strong women!
