Join us for the screening of 23 August, a new work by artist Simina Neagu.


23 August (2023, 24mins), a new work by artist Simina Neagu. The short film explores the history of the 5th World Festival of Youth and Students which took place in Bucharest, Romania in 1953.

In the spirit of recuperating a hopeful, partly utopian story of transnational solidarity for future generations, the story is told through the perspective of two activists – John La Rose, from Trinidad, and Paul Joseph, from South Africa, who forged a life-long friendship after meeting at this anti-colonial and anti-imperialist festival.

The screening is followed by a conversation between the artist and Nadia Joseph.

This event is co-presented with Open School East in a year-long partnership.
