Director's Screening: Bikutsi Water Blues

Sat, Jun 1 / 2 pm


Bikutsi Water Blues, 1988
Dir. Jean-Marie Teno
93 mins 
In French with English subtitles

Before starring in their own concert film (Man No Run by Claire Denis), the legendary bikutsi rock group Les Têtes Brulées appeared as one of several unconventional guests at a school in Cameroon determined to fight for drinkable water in this docu-fiction hybrid.  

After the screening of this key work in his fascinating career, Africa’s leading documentary filmmaker, Jean-Marie Teno, will participate in a Q & A with Richard Peña, Director Emeritus of the New York Film Festival and Professor at Columbia University.
