Asmarina: Film and Discussion with Angela Davis, Medhin Paolos, and Lorgia García Peña

6:00pm

Location: 

Harvard Art Museums

This documentary film about the habesha (Eritrean/Ethiopian community) of Milan, Italy, engages in historical disruption of the relationship between colonialism and diaspora. Interweaving testimonies of first- and second-generation habesha immigrants in Milan, archival research, photography, and music, the film brings to light Italian postcolonial heritage and its effects on present-day place of Italians of color, immigrants, and refugees.
