BEATS OF ANTONOV + Q&A with Amanda Villepastour


Sudan/2014/Arabic/68 mins

Director: Hajooj Kuka

Hajooj Kuka’s short yet eloquent, even optimistic documentary about the peoples and music along the war-ravaged border between North and South Sudan is an exemplar of how filmmakers can give dignity to refugees by allowing them their names and their voices. While music is the main feature, “Beats” is really a pic about the resilience of oppressed communities, whose ability to hold onto their culture enables them to remain unified.
