White Cube Screening
This is a diverse african screening event that is great for the family. White Cube is a film directed by Renzo Martens in collaboration with CATPC. It follows the journey of Congolese plantation workers as they set a new precedent. In White cube, the feature-length documentary film, they successfully co-opt the concept of the ‘White cube’ to buy back their land from international corporations. White cube follows the Cercle d’Art des Travailleurs de Plantation Congolaise (CATPC); a plantation workers’ cooperative based on a former Unilever plantation in Lusanga, Democratic Republic of Congo. The film documents CATPC’s success in ending the destructive system of monoculture on their lands.
