Delphine’s Prayers

 

78e7c3fa-4383-e200-3ae8-3da25ef8b0f2.jpg

Delphine’s Prayers is the story of Delphine – a young Cameroonian woman – and her life in Belgium. Through a series of confessions from Delphine, a powerful portrait emerges of a generation of women lost to the dream of a better world in Europe. Through her courage, Delphine exposes the patterns of domination that continue to oppress some African women.

Delphine's Prayers will be followed by a live online Q&A with Rosine Mbakam which will be live-streamed from the cinema to Selects.

What can a home be? From a dense and complex space of existence to a kind place of acceptance and open conversation, these films share unique notions of home.

Golden Flask – A single night in a small apartment in which the same four people have lived together for many years. Nothing changes here. People’s hearts may not age, but their minds, worn by the ravages of time, cannot function clearly anymore. They talk about God, dreams, and their growing beer bellies. Time seems circular; life is a waiting room.

Golden Flask will be followed by a live online Q&A with Jurgis Matulevicius and Paulius Anicas which will be live-streamed from the cinema to Selects.

The Year of the White Moon – In the intimacy of a muted, deserted living room, a series of telephone conversations take place between a superstitious mother living in the Russian provinces and her gay son, who moved to the capital. The Year of the White Moon is a tragicomedy about a conversation between two people who hear each other, but are not able to listen.

The Year of the White Moon will be followed by a Q&A with Maxim Pechersky which will be shown after the screening and be available on Selects.

DocFest Exchange: Beyond Our Own Eyes 

Check out the trailer for this year’s DocFest Exchange Programme, which launches today!

 

0307af4bfcf6b43cb40dcef5435f1361.png

Whether we view the earth from outer space, or through the lens of a microscope, we will discover diverse, interconnected, and interdependent life. This year’s DocFest Exchange challenges the ways in which we see the world, and invites us to inhabit perspectives beyond our own. Can we imagine the world through the eyes of an animal? Can we shift our perspective to the scale of a microbe? Can we understand life as a planetary-level phenomenon? Join us in Sheffield and online for the films, talks and workshops in this year’s DocFest Exchange.
