About Event

"Slavery Routes" is a documentary film co-directed by Daniel Cattier, Juan Gélas and Fanny Glissant with historical advisor Catherine Coquery-Vidrovitch, Professor Emeritus at the University of Paris-Diderot.

The documentary explores the mechanisms of slavery and slave trade from the 5th to the 19th century throughout the African continent, and combines a variety of historical and scientific resources. The effective narrative is supported by scientific points of view, and served by a stylish visual presentation that sheds light on witnesses from different eras.
"Slavery Routes" focuses on the consequences of this history on contemporary societies and is firmly rooted in the present.

Screening is open to the public, and will be followed by discussion with the public, in presence of Ahmed Hassan (Institute of Ethiopian Studies, University of Addis Ababa), Marie Pierre Ballarin (IRD), Benedetta Rossi (University of Birmingham), Mohamed Bakhit (University of Khartoum), Giulia Bonacci (IRD) and Alexander Meckelburg (University of Hamburg).
