“An original filmmaker of exquisite sensibility; one of the foremost filmmakers of creative nonfiction working right now.”
The New Yorker

Rosine Mbakam’s powerful, empathetic documentary films focus on the migrant experiences of women and the legacies of colonialism. Cameroonian-born and Belgium-based, Mbakam constructs films with a patient rigor devoted to giving the women she features space to tell their own stories. This series features the exclusive theatrical runs of two new films by Mbakam, along with a retrospective of four earlier films.
