Portuguese Speaking Film Cycle in Canterbury

As part of this year’s PGSummer, the GRC is proud to support a cycle of films being screened, centring the experiences of the Community of Portuguese Language Countries (shortened to CPLP, for the Portuguese: Comunidade dos Países de Língua Portuguesa).

This event is being run by Cláudia Ferreira Fernandes Moreira, who is the recipient of a GRC Community Experience Award, joining the list of previous awardees. Cláudia has programmed three days of films, each one chosen to offer a deep overview of the culture of these countries, as well as their relationships and connections. You can see films such as Um Animal Amarelo (Brazil), Angola – Nos Trilhos da Independência (Angola), Uma Memória em Três Atos (Mozambique) and Mina Kiá (São Tomé and Príncipe). The schedule and full programme can be seen here, with debates and discussions throughout, culminating in a dinner party on the Friday afternoon.

CPLP on Screen : Dialogues on Lusophone Identity runs from 21st and the 23rd of June 2023, held in MLT2 (Marlowe Lecture Theatre 2). Please do register here.
