RED AFRICA d. Alexander Markov, 2022 + Q&A with Professor Jeremy Hicks & Dr. Awino Okech presented by New East Cinema at Barbican (10 JUL 18:25).
In the 1960s, when many African states were breaking away from western colonialism and exploring afrosocialism, the USSR saw an opportunity to expand.
Presenting extraordinary archive footage, Alexander Markov’s documentary RED AFRICA (2022) explores the Soviet Union’s attempt to mask colonialism as comradery in order to exert influence on Africa’s newly liberated states.
