Born in Kinshasa and living in Paris, filmmaker Alain Kassanda embodies the classic immigrant dual identity: in the Democratic Republic of Congo he is seen as French, while in France he is seen as Congolese. Kassanda convinces his grandparents—Colette and Justin—to sit for a series of interviews that become an evocative, poetic and thoughtful meditation on the intersection of political and family history, and the multi-generational destructive reach of colonialism.

Don't miss the discussion with director Alain Kassanda on Monday, February 5 at 7:00 PM!
