Pieces of Identity: Film Screening and Discussion

Mani Kongo, King of a rural area of the Bakongo, travels to Belgium in search of his daughter with whom he has not been in contact for a long time. As he negotiates traveling from a rural area in the Congo, to Kinshasa and then Brussels, we learn about issues of identity and experiences of prejudice in a European society.

Pieces of Identity is part of the Center for Black Diaspora's Winter Quarter film series "Cinema: Transnational Subjects, African & Black Diaspora Immigrant Experiences". The films cover a wide scope of discussion on the Diaspora in little known places like Iran, as well as the migration to places in Europe and the Americas.

Recorded Wednesday, March 03, 2010 at DePaul University - Richardson Library - Rosati Room 300
