Join BloomBars and TransAfrica as we present a collection of short films by Namibian filmmaker, Vickson Hangula.

Place of Peace

A film about missing people who, after a while, come back with a new vision of themselves and the world. Place of Peace takes the viewer to a mystic Namibia that can be for some a "place of peace." (2012, 32 min, Drama, English).

Once We Were Hunters

Hunting was essential for the survival of the Ju/’hoansi ethnic group. Director Vickson Hangula gives a voice to a member of the Ju/’hoansi so they can talk about the changes in their lives as modernization influences their traditions. (2011, 48 min, Docu-drama, English and Ju, w/ Eng subtitles).

 

After our screening, we will have Q&A with Vickson Hangula.
