April 25 | Screening: Aimé Césaire: le masque des mots by Sarah Maldoror, 1987 @ Coral Gables Art Cinema

Screening: Aimé Césaire: le masque des mots by Sarah Maldoror, 1987

Guadeloupean filmmaker Sarah Maldoror documented the landmark FIU Négritude conference in Aimé Césaire: le masque des mots/Aimé Césaire: Mask of Words. Maldoror makes the city of Miami a protagonist in her homage to the Martinican poet Aimé Césaire, as her footage shuttles from FIU to the Everglades to the recently-opened Metrorail. Through her juxtaposition of Martinique and Miami, Maldoror raises important questions about the endurance of colonial legacies in both locations. And by linking Black Miami to Aimé Césaire’s poetry and politics, the film makes an urgent case for a Pan-Caribbean coalition of all those “without whom the earth would not be the earth.”

Join us afterwards for a conversation between Miami filmmakers and scholars about the history and future of Miami in a Francophone Caribbean context of anticolonialism, poetry, and radical film.

April 25, 6pm, Coral Gables Art Cinema | Cosponsored: School of Communication and the Center for Global Black Studies at the University of Miami

UPCOMING IN APRIL: The Afro-Cuban French twins, IBEYI

Following their third album Spell 31 release last May and the unfortunate postponement of their American tour, Lisa-Kaindé and Naomi Diaz will finally bring their powerful new show, including a full live band, to fourteen major American cities. Ojerime and Annahstasia are joining Ibeyi on select dates. See all live tour dates on their website:

After tackling subjects like womanhood, racism, and activism on their 2017 release Ash and familial history, death and origins on their 2015 self-titled release, on Spell 31 the twins set out to remobilize the power of their birth given destiny as Ibeyi, which has led them on a path to restoration in pursuit of true harmony, healing and magic. Featuring 10 new songs, written by Ibeyi, who worked again with their long-time producer Richard Russell (Ash, Ibeyi), over the course of 2021 in London, Spell 31 features appearances from Jorja Smith, Pa Salieu, BERWYN, Ibeyi’s father and mother and a reimagining of Black Flag’s “Rise Above.”

More on Ibeyi:

Since the release of their critically-acclaimed sophomore album Ash and the duo’s globally acclaimed, eponymous debut album, Ibeyi’s music has garnered fans and collaborators in some of the most iconic artists of today including Beyoncé, Residente, Alvin Ailey, JR, Lin-Manuel Miranda, Prince, Roy Hargrove, Adele, Kamasi Washington, David Byrne and Emicida; a result of Ibeyi’s uniquely, captivating blend of Yoruban music with modern jazz, pop, electronic, soul and hip-hop. Their music and original compositions have been featured in the films ROMA and How to Stop a Recurring Dream, and in campaigns for Chanel, Nike, and Louis Vuitton.
